莫以输赢定输赢

原文作者:四叶草

  blood streamed down the cloth of her immaculate2) jersey3) and onto the sandy dirt. it flowed from her face like relentless4) tears. she lay prostrate5), vulnerable, painfully helpless. then the ambulance came and rolled her away. a man raked6) the circle of blood off the field.
   some people say hardball is not a sport. some believe girls aren't tough enough. valley high school varsity7) player christy connor would beg to differ8). her weapon was her bat. her drive was her need for victory. her power? well, that was just her broad shoulders, long legs, and strong body. christy connor was an athlete. she was tough enough to take our pundit high varsity pitcher9) out for the season.
   christy stepped inside the lines of the white rectangle of doom. she readied her bat and cocked10) it between her shoulders, with her hands in close proximity to11) her ears. our pitcher signaled her pitch to the catcher. the catcher nodded and the pitch was released. smash. this was the sound of the ball off the bat, making its way to our pitcher's nose. crack. this was the sound of her nose breaking, flattening across her face. thud12). this was the sound of her body hitting the ground, in the time span of only three seconds. then only silence was heard. the crowd stood, mouths open and eyes bulged13). hearts fell to the floor and hands covered heads in distress. the pundit team gathered together and turned away from the mound14). our fallen soldier screamed.
   "go warm up," the coach said to me.
  these three words made an impression on me that i would never forget. i processed them for a minute. "warm up?" i thought. i was the second pitcher in line, weighing in at only one hundred pounds, equipped with a nose that could be shattered by a landing butterfly. i was the only one there with trembling hands and a mortified15) mind. the pitcher's blood had just been spewed16) across the infield17). i was the next pitcher. it wasn't exactly a difficult connection to make. my eyes watered, my breath quickened, my heart hammered. i was about to pitch against monsters twice my size in one of the biggest games of the season. these were the same monsters that had just taken down one of us. my mind raced with scenarios of how the remaining eight innings18) of the game could go. each scenario revolved around me, dead on the floor.
   these thoughts lasted only ten minutes. our pitcher, still screaming, was carted away. i pulled back my hair, took a deep breath, and then hesitantly stepped on the mound as the game restarted. the crowd may have been in shock as our pitcher was carried out, but they were in disbelief when they realized we were about to continue. my mother's fright19) worsened as she saw me, a little freshman, step into the circle.

 "you can do it," my dad mouthed.
  my mom looked at me with pride and held up her hands in a boxing stance20) position.
   "fight," she said.
  i kn

ew what she meant. it was my chance to prove that even christy connor wasn't tougher than me, nor the other eight valley players of great height and power. i quickly closed the inning without letting them score. i took a deep breath, thankful i hadn't died yet. every time a new monster entered the batter's box, they looked at their coach with a cocky21) smirk22) and laughed at the fact that they had already defeated our team. they couldn't defeat me.
   well, technically, they could—and did. they won nine to zero. but that wasn't what mattered that day. they never did defeat me internally.some people say girls can't play sports, or they aren't tough enough. i was tough enough to pitch the rest of the game, scared out of my mind but persistent. the outcome was irrelevant. what mattered was persistence.
   sports are significant in the moment, like anything else in life. however, lasting significance comes from the lessons you learn. i wasn't meant to pitch amazingly that day; i was meant to learn a lesson about myself. nothing could come my way, be it a monster or a mouse, which i could not confront. i could not go through life afraid to take on the impossible. i could not be afraid to take a risk—because it would always be in the trying that i could achieve success.
   鲜血像止不住的泪水不断地从她的脸上流下来,顺着她那一干二净的运动衣淌下,滴到地上的沙土中。www.seunghunhome.com她趴在地上,脆弱不堪又苦楚万分,显得非常无助。然后,救护车开了过来,载着她驶走了。有个人过来清除了球场上的那圈血迹。
   有些人说棒球不能算是一项真实的运动。有些人以为女孩子身板不可硬,不适合打棒球。山沟中校园棒球队的队员克里丝蒂·康纳对这些观念并不苟同。球棒便是她的兵器,关于成功的渴求则是她的动力。那她的力气从何而来呢?唔,她有宽广的膀子、细长的双腿和健旺的身体。克里丝蒂·康纳是一名满足坚强的运动员,她有才干在本赛季让咱们蓬特中校园棒球队的投手出局。
   克里丝蒂踏入决议命运的白色矩形赛场中,她握好球棒,曲折手臂使球棒坐落两肩之间,双手紧挨自己的耳朵。咱们队的投手向捕手暗示预备投球,捕手点了允许,投手的球便投了出去。哐。这是球被对方队员的球棒击中后飞离球棒的声响,它朝着我方投手的鼻子一路飞了回去。啪。这是她鼻梁断了的声响,重击之下她的鼻子塌了下去。砰。这是她倒地的声响,这个进程仅用了三秒。接下来,赛场上一片幽静。观众们都站了起来,张大了嘴,眼睛瞪得圆圆的。咱们的心都沉到了谷底,双手抱着头,显得很苦楚。蓬特中学棒球队的队员靠拢在一起,转过头不看投球区土墩。咱们队这位倒下的兵士尖叫着。
   “预备上。”教练对我说。
  教练的这三个字给我留下了深刻印象,让我毕生难忘。我把那三个字细心掂量了一分钟。“预备?”我揣摩着。作为候补投手,我体重才100磅(译注:约45.4 kg),还长着一个一触即溃的鼻子,一只蝴蝶落在上面就可能让它破坏。场上只要我一人双手颤栗,大脑乱作一团。咱们队的投手刚方才血溅赛场,而我却是下一位行将上场的投手。替她上场并不是一件特别难想到的事儿,我却两眼噙着泪花,呼吸变得短促起来,心也怦怦直跳。这场竞赛是本赛季最大型的竞赛之一,我却要在竞赛中向两倍于我身段的恶魔们投球,而正是她们刚刚放倒了我的一位队友。我脑海中敏捷闪现出在接下来的八局竞赛中可能会呈现的景象,每种景象都离不开我死在地上的姿态。
   这些主意只继续了非常钟。咱们队的投手还在尖叫着就被抬走了。我把头发向后拨弄了一下,深吸了一口气,然后跟着竞赛重新开端,踌躇地踏上了投球区的土墩。看着咱们队的投手被抬下场,观众本可能会大吃一惊;但是,当他们意识到咱们队立刻要开端接着竞赛时,他们都不敢相信。看到我这个新来的小屁孩儿踏进了投球区,妈妈愈加忧虑了。
   “你能够的。”爸爸用口型暗示我。
  妈妈骄傲地看着我,高高举起双手,摆成拳击搏斗的姿态。
  “战役吧。”她说。
  我理解她的意思。我的时机来了,我要向咱们证明:即使是克里丝蒂·康纳也没我坚强,她们山沟棒球队的其他八名身高力大的队员也不可。我很快就打完了这局,没让她们得到一分。我深吸了一口气,幸亏自己还活着。每次一个新的恶魔来到击球方位,她们都会用一种狂妄自大的神态朝她们的教练满意地笑一下,还因她们现已打败了咱们队而大笑不已。但她们打不败我。
   唔,从技术上来说,她们能打败我——也确实把我打败了。她们以9:0的比分赢了。不过,这个成果在那天并不重要,由于她们从未打败我的心。有些人说女孩子不适合参与体育运动,或者说她们不可坚强。但我却满足坚强,在接下来的竞赛中一向担任投手,尽管惧怕得大脑一片空白,但却坚持了下来。竞赛成果无关紧要,重要的是这份坚持。
   正如生射中的其他工作相同,竞赛在那一刻非常重要。但是,能带来久远含义的却是你从中学到的东西。那天,我并没有盼望自己会有多么精彩的投球体现,我仅仅想让自己学到一些东西。什么都无法阻挠我行进的脚步,即使它是我不敢面临的大恶魔或是小老鼠。我不能在惧怕去测验那些不可能的工作中度过此生。我不能够惧怕冒险,由于总是在这样的测验之中,我才干取得成功。
   棒球是一种集体球类运动,由两支人数各为九人的

部队在一个扇形球场进行“击球—跑位”方式的对立。棒球球队分为攻、守两方,两方各攻、守一次为一局,正式竞赛为九局。竞赛开端时,守方投手(pitcher)站在投球区土墩(mound)大将球掷出,攻方击球手(batter)在击球区(batter's box)用球棒(bat)将守方投手投来的球击出,随后顺次踏过一垒(first base)、二垒(second base)和三垒(third base)并安全回到本垒(home base)后得一分;若守方捕手(catcher)使用手套将投手掷出的球接住或掷回,那么攻方击球手将出局;若守方其他队员在球落地之前将球接住,那么跑垒员(即击球手)将被“接杀”;若守方投手对击球者投出三个“好”球,那么跑垒员将被“三振出局”。当攻方有三人被“杀”出局时,两边即交换攻守,如此轮番替换进行九局,九局中得分较高的一队胜出。
