This article is about trained elephants and how they never try to pull the stake that holds them down because they remember that they are unable to because they were not strong enough when they were younger. I would not want to have an elephant's memory because I would not want previous experiences to limit my ability to believe in myself because I have messed up before. My best memory is of when I hit my first out-of-the-park home run. I was in Florida with my travel softball team, the Batbusters for the World Series, our last tournament of the summer. It was our second to last game and I was up to bat. We were losing pretty badly and there were two runners on base. It was a 2-2 count and I got an inside pitch. I swung the bat and BOOM! The ball soared over the right field fence. I was sprinting to first and saw it go over. I slowed down and took the moment in. My team came out of the dugout to congratulate me. Even though we didn't end up winning the game, it was one of the best moments of my life. I couldn't stop smiling. I even got to keep the ball!
