END OF AUGUST 2010 UPDATES

Well it looks like I received player of the Week for Week 19 (Aug 16- Aug 22), hitting everything in sight, making sure runners advance so we have the better chance of winning. Things look good. I had a .545 AVG that week. After the August 24th home game, against the Padres, I hung out at a cafe with Rarity, Trixie, Sunset Shimmer and others.

Rarity: You're looking really good out there Alex darling.
Trixie: Yeah, player of the week! You're the bomb~
Fluttershy: I hope you guys make the playoffs.
Alex: Sadly, it hasn't looked good. We're last in the division.
Fluttershy: Oh! Umm oh my. I'm sorry I haven't checked the standings as of late.
Alex: It's alright, I help the team out the best I can.
Applejack: That's the spirit sugarcube!
Rarity: Any offseason plans?
Alex: We'll see. I'll wait for that when the season ends.


2010 STATS (as of AUG 31 2010)

AVG: .446
Games: 130
Hits: 152

END OF 2010 SEASON UPDATES:

September began being 14.5 games out of first and suddenly with a 13 game win streak and a 7 game win streak, we finished the season 1 game out of first. The Brewers Clinched the NL Central. I won back to back player of the week awards plus a player of the month award for September. I was feeling good and spent October working out and getting better.

I was in a restaurant in St. Louis with my friend Sport, who was a Cardinal.

Sport: So Alex, gotta special someone yet?
Me: No. Why?
Sport: Oh, nothing *smirks*
Me: What's with the smirk? *confused*
Sport: Alright, I might as well say it. Rarity, Trixie and Sunset asked me where you were after the game. They were also blowing up my phone *winks*
Me: Oh.
Sport: As in, some of the girls, have a thing for you. Why don't you ask one out?
Me: *blushes* Umm
Sport: You ok?
Me; Y-Yeah...
Sport: Don't be shy bro. I got your back
Me: *smiles* Thanks bro
Sport: So, Player of the Month! Impressive!
Me: Thanks Man

With the Playoffs, the Yankees and Dodgers met in the World Series.

I also decided once again to dress up for Halloween, go around Cincy and Northern Kentucky celebrating Halloween with many others. I donated $10,000 this time instead of $1,000.

The Yankees won the World Series 4 games to 3 on Halloween. I won no awards but that's alright. I want to compete in 2011 and be one of the very best.

OFFSEASON 2010:

Well, it was renewal time with my contract. Darryl, one of the best agents out there agreed to become my agent to help me with a contract. I hope things go well.

Darryl: Time for you contract renewal.....Here I go.

*goes to the GM Office*

*A Few minutes later*

Darryl: This is what I negotiated...

*Contract says $470,000 1 Year*
Darryl: How's that?

Me: I'll take it (Knowing im pretty easy going)
Darryl: Your contracts finished...That was alright I guess...

I paid $23,500 for his work. Sadly, I realized that it decreased 52% from before later. It's time to start practicing for 2011.

*November*

As I finished practicing in the gym, the Coach came up.

MLB Coach: Next Thanksgiving, wouldn't it be a good idea to present some kids with some baseball equipment? You in?
Me: Definitely!
Coach: I had a feeling you would say that! What would you like to donate?
Me: $1,000
Coach: Alright gotcha, I'll sign you up for that!

It's always a good feeling to do great things for the community.

*Thanksgiving*

I hung with family and friends that day. Watched some football and such. Then I got a phone call from Coach.

Coach: Hey Alex! It's Thanksgiving today! Well, about that baseball equipment we promised to donate to local kids, I went ahead and mailed it to them. They're probably over the moon right now. Anyway, I hope you enjoy today too!

*December*

I got a package on the 1st.

"Gray! A package was sent to you from the kids we gave baseball equipment to on Thanksgiving!"

"I'm very grateful for the ball and bat! I'll take good care of them!" The kid sent me POWERINs. I smiled.

*Rarity calls me*
Rarity: Hello Alex darling.
Me; Hey Rares.
Rarity: Do you wanna hang with me, Trixie and Sunset?
Me: Sure

"What if Sport was right...."

I turned 25 on December 20th and had a party with friends and teammates. The Coach also asked if I could donate baseball equipment for Christmas, of course I did! I dressed as Santa Claus and went to various schools.

Cheerilee: Ok everyone. Quiet down now! Today, a really special Santa Claus has come to visit us! From the Reds, It's Alex Gray!
Boy: Oh, it's Santa!
Girl: He's really come to meet us!
Boy: Hey, is that really Alex Gray? I can't believe it!
Jennings: What do you know? Everyone just really loves Santa Claus, eh?
Girl: Hey there, Santa, what kind of presents did you bring?
Me: *gives her a ball signed by me and Sport*
Girl: Wow! Thanks!

It brought tears to my eyes in a good way. It makes me feel good everytime.

Rarity: Alex darling, could you come here for a second?
Me: *walks up to Rarity, Trixie, Sunset and Coco Pommel, under the mistletoe, never realizing*

They kissed me. Yep, Sport you were right. Gahhhhhh


Onward to 2011.....

*2011 Spring Training*

As I was heading to my first game, early, I saw a baseball movie being filmed by Photo Finish. An old friend from Canterlot.

Photo: What! He's still not here? I've had enough of this!
Sonata Dusk: B-But Photo...
Photo: We should have started the rehearsal already!
Adagio: Oh chill Photo Finish, the other actor's just stuck in traffic...
Photo: Look I can not wait anymore, let's start ze rehearsal!
Aria: What are we supposed to do about the other leading actor?
Photo: I do not care who you get! Wait.....Alex Gray?
Me: *waves*
Photo: Come here!
Me: *thinks* She wants me in a movie???
Photo: We need to rehearse a proposal scene. So from on top of the mound, you need to ask *points to Coco Pommel* her to marry you. I know you, you can do zat much without a script right?
Adagio: Sounds good.
Photo: Scene 51, ACTION!

Alright here we go

Me: *while on top of the mound, I knelt down and took Coco's hand softly*
Coco: Oh I've never felt so happy. Maybe I can't catch any of your pitches, but I'm sure I can handle your love. Together, life will be one big complete game.
Photo: Cut! Excellent work! Looks like the actor arrived! Let's do it for real.
Coco: I don't know....Alex did it so well...and besides *blushes a bit* umm
Photo: It'll be fine.
Coco: I'll talk to you soon ok Alex? Good luck today *hugs me tight*

((Yes I'm having my own touch to the story I apologize if you don't like it))

First Game: 5-5 (3 singles, 2 HR, 3 RBI, 1 Stolen Base) 8-3 Win
Second Game: 3-5 (2 Singles, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 1 Stolen Base) 5-2 Win
Third Game: 2-5 (2 Singles) 8-5 Win
Fourth Game: 4-5 (4 Singles, 3 Stolen Bases) 4-3 Loss

I'll be playing Opening Day! See you all there!

END OF APRIL 2011 Updates:

.535 AVG

Won player of the week twice and player of the month for April. Things are looking fantastic. I'm starting every game, playing the full game, and currently on a 30+ game hitting streak going into May. The Reds are 2nd in the division at the end of April.

Sport: Dang man, you keep on getting better. Nice work!
Me: Thanks Sport ^^
