Long pants and high socks covered in sandy dirt
Five games in, our last shot
  Thumbs covered in blisters, palms painted with calluses
Sun beaming down on our sweaty, exhausted faces
Determined for the title
Coaches” voices are becoming weaker
We score
They score
Tied in the bottom of the seventh
Two out  our man on third
Batter up with two strikes
One pitch later
A mob of grey uniforms flees out of the dugout
Screaming
Coaches crying out in joy
News writers swarm around the pile of the New Jersey State Champions
We’ve got the Magic in us
