Right after high school, I, along with my buddies participated in a neighborhood baseball event. During the game, I was hit by a baseball which created swelling on my left knee. The game was an important one that would put us in the quarterfinals and I had to continue playing to atleast have a shot at getting into the quarterfinal. I swung my bat on the first instance and I missed. The second time, I connected and put the ball out of the park. I limped but managed to complete my run. We did not win the game eventually but I was happy I showed strength and did not give up even though I was in pain.
