First comes the windup, the stitches whirling wildly
The batter swings, the ball soars off into left field….
The umpire yells
Again, the ball comes hurtling toward the plate
Goes the bat, “stay fair! stay fair!”
The ball flies over the fence-
Striding the first 90 feet, hardly believing that he was the one
Four points for the home team, victory within reach
Rounds the corner and heads towards second,
The short stop sneering as he breezes by
Home base is in sight, his teammates, his brothers,
Waiting to hoist him up into the air
World Series here we come!
