One of the best things about sports is the lessons you learn. My biggest lesson I have learned is to never quit when you are down. For example, when I was a freshman in high school I did not make the baseball team. Instead of quitting and never playing again I joined the cross country and track team to get in better shape. The following year I tried out for the the baseball team again and made it this time. I played throughout high school. If I had quit when I was down then I would have forever regretted my decision. Instead I learned a valuable life lesson.
