Hello my name is Jake Witherow I have been working hard on this project and I can honestly say it’s been very enjoyable thus far. After high school, I plan on continuing my education in college to further my knowledge and aim for a degree. While in college however I am hoping to continue playing the game I love which is the great sport of baseball. Even though I have played baseball since the age of four I have never actually worked on a field to get it game ready. That is why for my senior project I have decided to do baseball field management where I will help work on a field instead of playing on it.
My research paper topic was basically about different types of ballfields and tools you need to help keep the fields up and running. While researching this topic I learned new things that I honestly didn’t know or even think about. The issue I researched was getting fields game ready and working on the field. While researching this issue I learned that details really matter when setting up a field for games and just working on them. When getting a field ready when doing the lines down first and third base if they are not straight then there could be more foul balls which can always change the outcome of the game, or there could be more fair balls which also can change the game.
The product I am working on is getting a baseball field ready and fixing it up so that it will be game ready. My research paper was about different types of baseball fields and different tools that are used to keep them up and running. They are related because the tools are what I will be using in order to work on the field these are also related because they are both about working on baseball fields. An obstacle that I have found is managing time with school and baseball with working on the fields. The success I have had is finding the perfect week to work on the project.
They relate to a career because after you work on a field for so long you could be moved up to where you help run the field and organize games and practices. I learned as the senior project advanced that my time management skills need improvement. I also learned that there are a lot of different things to do when working on the fields. My desire to pursue this career after school is not there anymore honestly I just do not like doing this. This would be a job I would not mind to work on but this job would not be my first pick.
The senior project in my opinion pushes seniors to branch out and find out if they like a career choice that they have been thinking about. It also helps in ways of getting us organized and making work our time scheduling better. I would like to thank all the judges for their time reading this.
