I am Jeremiah Thomasson, I am 15 years old. I have been playing baseball since I have been about 6 or 7 yrs old. My prime position is catcher and secondary position is second base.
Throughout my journey I have always been very good at playing baseball and I have always been a starter until about 2 years ago when I started High School and tryed out for baseball. I basically have not played and sat on the bench for 2 years. Basically I was told I was too small to be a catcher, and I was told I almost not made the team. What a blow not to play the game I love so much. I went through mental and physical rejection and was doubting my ability to play.
I always had to look up to God for my strength. He tells me in Phil 4:13 That I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me. I believe in his word for me because I know he has gifted me for baseball.
I am playing select ball and I am playing in showcases this summer. These coaches believe in me and they saw me catch for the first time and I have been catching every since. I have been hitting and making contact with the ball every game and I hit my first home run today! I was so excited until I came home and my Mom said this could be my last tournament with my team and teammates.
We received a letter today from my select coach saying that we need to pay $1,670 for the rest of my tournaments. My parents are not able to come up with it all at once because they have sacrificed so much already for me.
I really love the game of baseball and I want to make it far. My prayer is that if I continue with these showcases that scouts will see me and allow me to further my education and allow me to play on their team in college. So I am just asking if anybody can help me out I would be thankful. God Bless you and have a blessed day.
