Little League

One, two, three strikes your out
Playing our rivals, another epic bout

The stress of playing inning after inning
Sweaty hands and butterflies are all beginning

It's the start of the seventh inning stretch
A Coke and peanuts are a great fetch
Bottom of the ninth, MAN! we're behind one run
Rally caps are out, and the chanting has begun

I'm not a big league baseball slayer
I'm a ride the pine little league player

I wish I had the courage to say;
"Put me in coach, I'm ready to play!"

    Oh, Abe, you certainly capture all of the things I love about baseball, whether little league or pro. The spirit in the bleachers, the peanuts and softdrinks consumed in summer heat, the suspense of the ninth inning...You have hit a home run!!! Excellent write and one for my favorites. Also love the reference to the song in your last line. Love, Carolyn
