He wasn't the only one who came out on a picture-perfect spring afternoon and participated in the "The Dream Games" tournament, co-sponsored by League of Dreams.
In 2004, Catonsville resident Frank Kolarek founded the League of Dreams with the goal of seeing that everybody, regardless of limitation or disability, gets a chance to be a player in baseball or softball.
The non-profit organization has served over 3,500 players.
At the tournament, 170 Allied Softball athletes from 14 Baltimore County schools made history on the four makeshift softball diamonds that were set up, and four 40-minutes games were played simultaneously.
Kolarek, president and executive director, and Mike Bordick, League of Dreams chairman of the board and former Major League player and current analyst for the Baltimore Orioles, were there offering inspiring words.
Kolarek has deep roots in Catonsville sports and his son, Adam, a 2007 Catonsville High graduate, currently plays baseball for the Triple-A Durham Bulls, after making his Major League debut last summer with the Tampa Bay Rays.
Frank Kolarek worked closely with Catonsville allied softball coach Alicia Brady and Brad Kressman, Baltimore County Public Schools Allied Sports Resource Teacher, to make the tournament a reality for the first time.
"We basically found out about it through Alicia and then with Brad through the school system and approached them about how to co-host the event and to bring it here to Catonsville and everybody was in favor of that," Kolarek said. "It was really hosted by Catonsville, but we helped to co-sponsor it, so it was great, great people, it was the right combination, between us, as a separate non-profit organization, and the school of Catonsville."
Before the tournament began, all the athletes convened in a circle at midfield and Kolarek and Bordick offered inspiring words.
But, all the athletes wanted to hear was "Play Ball."
"What we want to do is give them that experience of being outside, on the turf, in a tournament setting, national anthem, like a big league experience and it's worked out great," Kolarek said.
There are no team championship trophies for the tournament, but Kolarek provided an award.
"The one thing we've done is create a League of Dreams Cup and it's a trophy that is voted on by the coaches that goes to the team that exemplifies leadership, sportsmanship and teamwork, Kolarek said."
Losing to Parkville in the first game of the tournament barely phased Catonsville's Amorosi.
"We were facing them [Parkville] and we lost, but it's all right, we'll go get them next time," Amorosi said.
Amorosi was awarded the Brittney Reese Scholarship, named for the 2012 Olympic gold medalist in high jump.
The award is given each year to an allied athlete who participates in at least two sports and shows outstanding character and sportsmanship in life and sports and will attend a secondary school after high school.
Other Catonsville softball players who participated included: Caroline Bodley, Kellcy Carroll, Shaun Cunningham, Rachel Donnelly, Eric Jacobs, Paul Jeske, Jordan Johnson and Emme Shifflett.
