My name is Beau Amaral, i was born in Long Beach, California. When i was born my father was playing professional baseball for the Seattle Mariners. He played until i was 12 years old. So it was obvious that his job made it really hard for my family. Constantly traveling across the country, always moving into new homes and new schools. But when he retired from playing baseball my family moved to Huntington Beach, California.

Because of my dad, baseball was obviously a huge part of my life. He was able to teach me a lot about the game. So going into my freshman year of high school i was very confident that i would succeed at the sport. But a month before the first game I injured my throwing arm, which kept me out for my entire freshman year. Very sad but still confident, i started my sophomore year as the J.V. center fielder with a lot of catching up to do after missing a whole season. After playing well my sophomore year i moved onto my junior year ready to make an impact on the Varsity team. But right before the start of the season my arm started to hurt again and ended up having to have surgery on it and missed the entire season.

After the surgery i was feeling very discouraged because the doctors didn't think that i would be able to every play again. But that didn't stop my determination to come back and still try to achieve my dream of playing professional baseball. After months of rehab and hard work, i proved the doctors wrong and was able to play my senior year, leading the team in batting average and was drafted by the Arizona Diamondbacks. Getting a scholarship to UCLA and continue to play baseball at the level I want to compete at. Every time i step on the field i play to achieve the dream that i want and to prove to anyone who didn't think that i could play.
