Thwack, There's the 10th hit of the game,
“Preston, nice way to get it started”, screamed coach
It’s 7PM at Kenowa hills Baseball field


It’s 6-5 Pinery Park in a humongous game
Western is down to their final 3 outs
The batting order is Parker, Preston, Dylan, Brady, then me


Parker Struck out now just 2 outs remain
Preston gets a single
I hope I don’t get chest pain
The batting order gets turned over now
Dylan walks; Brady gets beaned


I am up next
First 2 balls bounce in the dirt
Pitcher winds up and delivers a meatball
It was a monstrous drive high into the sky


In that moment I felt like a hero
Everyone's face lit up
The final score of the championship 9-5 Western
