FASTPITCH

In fastpitch
You get to hit;
If not a person,
Then a ball
And watch it fall
Over the fence,
And no more will you be tense.

Running around the bases,
Looking at all those faces,
Some jeering,
Some cheering.
Put those together,
And it makes you feel
A whole lot better,
Even if it wasn’t hit towards the center.

On FastPitch- Alicia W
I like the rhyming in this poem like with the use of 'ball' and 'fall' or 'bases' and 'faces'. If I could change one thing about your poem it would be the last line. Even if changing the last line means breaking the rhyme scheme I would change it to make it stronger and give that last comment a note of finality.
