It’s the great American pass time that will never die,
The thundering sport called baseball, as the grand
Old flag waves in the breeze, of everlasting freedom above
The sacred stadium on opening day!
It’s the roaring of the exploding crowds, as their team
Players are called out by name, from the dug-outs of
The futures unknown hall of fame!
The birthing of a brand new season as the first ball
Is tossed out, by the celebrity guest, and the umpire
Screams, those wondrous words, LETS PLAY BALL!
It’s the sounding crack at the bat, by heroes of legendary
Status, champion defenders of their hometown pride,
These athletes of speed, agility, and epic skill!
Within their uniforms of fame, these iconic players
Are ready for the game to begin, in this arena of
Liberation’s legion of winners, the phrase home run
Says it all, on the scoreboard screen of reality!
In the stadium you can smell the blending of the familiar
Aroma’s the freshly cut grass, human sweat, and
Excitements anticipation building to a feverous pitch!
The grandstands hawker’s, yelling out loud, their famous
Words of wetted appetites endurance, “popcorn, peanuts,
Get your red hots here.”
These gentlemen pitchers with their own throwing rights
Of fames classification, tossing tempting wares, towards
The eager hands of their hungry patrons!
The thundering fans begin their stomping, clamoring
For their favorite teams, human waves of domination,
Cheering on the band stands battle field, within the
Bleachers of sacred historical fame!
It’s as American, as grandma’s secret recipe for apple pie,
 This blazing sport that we hold so close within our inner souls,
Pledging allegiance before the red, white and blue,
In this nation of freedom and liberty!
What a glorious field of dreams this sport of champions,
Creating heroic figures for generations to look up to,
The game shall live on within these living titan giants,
As long as the American flag, remains this nations
Sacred symbol of ultimate liberation!
So let us all rejoice in the game, cheering on our home teams,
With great prides respect, let the popcorn, peanuts, and
Red hots wrangler, never give up his famous yell,
For we are all Americans, enjoying this sport of champions!


Dedicated to my favorite vendor at work, 
Whom inspired this poem with his version
Of the grandstand hackers famous yell,
Popcorn, peanuts and get your red hots here!
Thanks again my friend John J. Stachowicz, cheri your honored fan!

    Did you watch the spin-off, this past Sunday? Fear The Walking Dead? The first episode, reveals how it all started. I can go on and on... WHo's your favorite and why??? LINDA

    Cheryl, I'm THE WALKING DEAD fan... LOL... I going to see Lennie J(MORGAN), Michael Rooker (Merle), Ross Marquand (Aaron), Lawrence Gilliard Jr. (BOB), Jon Bernthal (SHANE), Chad L. C. (Tyrese). I'm hoping to get Jon's autoprint ;) September 11th in Alamo City. I got the last doll standing at Texas Tot Toys. It was over priced. Anyways, I have Charlie Adlard's Autograph (director, writer, artist, of TWD). It's cost over $300.00 bucks... But so worth it...:) That is why I ask you for zombie poems. I'm a huge Romero Fan as well.. :) I'm also your fan.:)

Especially since I dated a professional baseball player about 10 years ago. it is a blazing sport, that hits a home run with my soul... Now, let's play ball... :) Always... A FAN... LINDA

    SO nice to see a fellow baseball fan Cheryl! I've heard it said that hitting a baseball is the most difficult thing to do in the world of sports and having once played, I know that to be true...I have been a Houston Astros fan since the 80's...You have composed a wonderful and uplifting tribute to America's Pastime...
