I’m addicted to the adrenaline of playing centerfield. I made varsity my freshman year of high school and played 2nd base for the first time and absolutely hated it...no action at all. In club ball I was catcher, but my HS team already had a good (and huge) catcher. Then a few games in, our Senior center fielder got injured on the field and had to sit out a few games. They switched me to centerfield and that was the first time I played outfield, and I LOVED it. I got so much action that I felt like a puppy dog playing catch from beginning to end. When the senior was ready to play again, she didn’t get her spot back. I played CF the rest of high school.I ran track and played club baseball. Ran the 400, 800, (usually in relays for those) the 1600 and the 3200. My senior year I ran the 1600 at 3A state in Colorado Springs (6000+ feet above sea level) at 4:41 and came in...11th place out of a field of 18. That was my best time though so I was stoked.
I played center field and 1B in baseball but I’m not very tall and if you have a taller guy with a good glove he makes for a better 1b than a shorter guy with a good glove. Once I got a little bigger and kids could hit in the air to the outfield I grew to love center field. Plus no other position in baseball has its own song.
