Who is the rookie this year? Do you think that the Brooklyn Dodgers have had a
rough season? With all of the sicknesses and all of the losses. And with the
fact that the Cardinals are always in first. They want to win the pennant so
bad. The manager Spike wants to win it fairly. They are doing pretty good
though. Thrid place isn’t a bad one. The Brooklyn Dodgers have been playing hard
to get where they are. There were alot of hardships that they all had to over
look. They also made an awsome come back to make it to the playoffs, then they
beat out the Pitsburg Pirates so the can play the St. Louis Cardnials in the
finals. If you wanna find out how they did your just going to have to read on.

He doesn’t want his players to be drinking anything during the season. If he
catches them there in for it deep. The coach will fine the players the first
time their caught with fifty dollars. The second time they get suspended and a
hundred dollar fine. The third time..well there isn’t a third time. When the
coach made this statement at the end of a game in the locker room, the most
mouthy person on the team even knew that he meant it because Raz didn’t say a
thing. The coach has also almost caught many people on the team but they get
extremely lucky and get away with it. The players think that alcohol is the
answer to all the stress after the game. Yet the coach knows that it will only
get the players sick and he is only doing this so that the players stay safe for
the games. Bones was fined once for alcohol and it wasn’t to much his fault. It
was because of his roomie who took him out and got him drunk because he thought
he was to stressed out. Spike made an example out of Bones and they moved Bones
with another room mate. Bones Hathaway was now stuck with an old veteran pitcher
and he didn’t like it. Mr. MacManus who owned the team was going to suspend
Bones Hathaway because Spike was being a hot head. He kept screwing thing up and
Mr. MacManus was going to take it out on his team. Luckely Spikes brother Bob
was there and cooled Mr. macmanus’ temper. The Dodgers have been playing tons of
games just so they can win the pentane. All they want is the pentant. They even
play games from like ten o’clock at night and can go on till two a.m. The
Cardinals are in first, Pirates in second, and the Dodgers in third. They have
beaten the Cardinals before but not enough times to move ranks around. They want
to face the Cardinals in the World Series for the pentane because they are
pretty sure that they can beat them. The Dodgers were actually on a winning
streak at one point then their best rookie pitcher became sick. He was one of
the reasons they had a winning streak but on the first day they won he had
bacon, eggs, and toast. The next game he ate the same breakfast and they won
again. So he was being superstitious and ate that breakfast for eleven days
straight. The coach gave a long speach about them eating right and he was very
upset that his best rookie pitcher was sick. Spike had a talk with Bones
Hathaway after he got better and asked him some question. He wanted to make sure
that Bones wasn’t getting sick because the other team paid him and that Bones
was a good hitter but didn’t show it because the other team paid him. The last
game. Only one game was left for those courageous Brooklyn Dodgers. They made
it. They made it all they to the pentane game. It was just them and the St.

Louis Cardinals. Before the game their manager Spike game them a little speech.

It wasn’t much, but it was enough. Spike told the team about what would happen
if the won. He told them how great it has been playing ball with them. He also
told them that he would rather lose with this team then win with the New York
Yankees. Spike told them how happy they made him that they go this far and no
matter win or lose he would always love this team. Then Bones Hathaway stood up
and told him,”Spike, we are going to win this one for you anyway.”Well,
the went out there. Not all loud and noisy but calm. The went out to play a
great game. Until the ninth inning. The score was nil (zero) to nil. Cardinals
came up and scored runs and took the lead. This didn’t send the Brooklyn Dodgers
into the gutter though. It just made them want to play harder and stronger.

Before the game there was a reporter that was bothering everyone. He was
bothering the coaches mostly though. He kept saking for pictures and interviews.

Spike was cool with it and let it go but the St. Louis Cardnials coach wasnt to
happy and it took him awhile to let them interview him. Durring this Bones
Hathaway was on the mound and was being bothered by other reporters while he was
trying to practice his pitching.They kept getting base hits and triples. The
kept scoring runs. They had two outs and the game winning hit all came down on
Bones Hathaway. Bones Hathaway was the novice pitcher. Two outs and he get
thrown a strike. Count is zero and one. Next pitch…umpire calls a strike. Now
Bonesy who has never said anything to the umpires and let the manager spike do
that stepped out of the box and started fighting with the umpire about the call.

Then the umpire turned around and the whole stadium was with Hathaway on this
call. He turned back to Bonsey and says if Bonsey says another word he will
eject him from the game. So Bonsey steps back into the box. Now his count zero
balls and two strikes. Spike is thinking he made a mistake by putting in
Hathaway and should have gone with a pinch hitter. The Cardinals pitcher throws
it. Its a fast ball right down the middle and boom! The ball is headed to the
fence. Hathaway came through and knocked the winning run which was at third base
home and the Dodgers won it. The Brooklyn Dodgers won the pentane! Stubblebeard,
the umpire, was he fair? Do you think that he referied a fair and cleane game?
He kept calling things for thre Brooklyn Dodgers and not the Cardnials. So…the
Brooklyn Dodgers won the pentane after all. After all of the hardships and
sacafices and all of those small matters that stood in their way. They tried
hard and sucseded. I guess there was a moral to this story. It was that if you
try hard you can achive. Or thats what I think it is. Well, it seemed as if it
was ment to be. That the Brooklyn Dogers were ment to win the pennant and go
home winners and make their manager Spike a very happy man. But you still have
to think..was it the pep talk at the begening, or was it just pure luck and they
tried their best just becasue its the pennant that their after? Part 2. 1. Ten
