I am Guarito and I love
sports. My favorite sport is
baseball. I practice all the time but
I play with other teams from
October to January, sometimes
February. Baseball is a very fun sport to practice. I can 48
run, I use a bat, gloves, special shoes, a cap and sometimes a helmet. You need 2 groups and
9 people to play baseball. The game lasts 9 innings, unless a game is tied, at which point they
play additional innings until an inning ends with one team in the lead. In terms of time, a
short baseball game takes about 2 hours, a "normal" one takes about three hours, and there is
not really any upper limit

My family and I follow “Deportivo Lara”, we like soccer as well.


The stadium is called “Metropolitano”. This sport is different but it’s also
great to be played with friends. You need boots, a bigger ball than the
one we use in baseball, shorts and socks to cover your legs. You need 2
groups, 11 people for each group. My family and I go to many games
every year. A professional soccer game is 90 minutes long. At the end of
each 45-minute half, the referee is allowed to add any number of additional minutes of play
at his own discretion

At school, I practice a lot of basketball. The teacher is playing


with us every Monday and Wednesday afternoon. To play this sport,
we need to have 2 teams with 5 people. This sport is played with
shorts, a t-shirt and an orange ball. This game is 4 quarters of 12
minutes each, for a total of 48 minutes. However, regulation time is
stopped for many aspects of gameplay, like fouls, ball out-of-bounds, timeouts, and a 15-
minute halftime. That makes the wall-clock duration of typical games 2-2.5 hours.

can ride her bike really fast. She rides her bike after school. Janet’s best friend and neighbor
is Allison. Janet goes to Allison’s house and then she goes back home every afternoon. Janet
likes to ride her bike with her dad and mom on weekends. Janet and her parents love to do
some exercises to keep their bodies in good shape and healthy thanks to their bikes. Her dad’s
bike is black and orange and her mom’s bike is silver with a golden flag. They always use
their helmets to protect their heads from injuries and the rain. They look both ways when
they are riding. It’s very important to be safe!
