How to use rookie in a sentence?

  1. Mark Buehrle:

    If it's a rookie pitching or a guy that's been around for a while, we've got that feel of whose butt are we going to kick today, that's a good feeling. We haven't had that the couple of years I've been here.

  2. Frederic Vasseur:

    Kevin has performed very well in his return to Formula One and Jolyon is approaching his rookie season in a clear and methodical manner, it’s true that Jolyon had a couple of races where he didn’t deliver as he wanted, equally this is natural in a driver’s first season; he’s learning and making strong progress.

  3. Camille Kostek:

    I get just as excited to show up on that set and shoot for that magazine as I did when I was a rookie, it is one of the most honorable things that I do. It goes beyond just posing for the magazine. The women behind the brand, the models within the brand, they're people like I'd never met before. Everyone just shares such a light and a love for wanting to really make waves in this industry, and I really didn't get my big yes until Sports Illustrated.

  4. La Russa:

    The fact that he's a rookie and was excited helps explain why he just was clueless, but now he's got a clue.

  5. Nicholas Latifi:

    I can't wait to take the next step forward as a full-time race driver, i don't underestimate the challenge ahead, going into F1 as a rookie, but I'm extremely motivated and determined to give it my all.
