PLAY BALL

Play ball!!  I heard the ump say...

Stepped to the plate so full of pride
That humble pitcher cannot hide
My cocky smile must be a mile wide

Strike one!!!  I heard the ump say

Oh, I stared the pitcher in the eye
I so am going to make you cry, I'll
Hit the cover off ball it's going to fly

Strike two!!! I heard the ump say

A home run, now you're gonna see
The pitcher's shame is my glad glee
Yes, a hero's welcome soon will be

But instead I heard, Strike three!!!

I stood there frozen feeling lame
The pitcher said Guzzi's my name
Raised her cap she was a dame

Struck me out three times that game!

    Great baseball story... great surprise ending, Dave! Gave me a chuckle! I've been a baseball fanatic from way way back! Was present in 1946 when Jackie Robinson played his first professional game for the Montreal Royals of the old International League! I was eleven and hooked!!! Cheers, Jack

    Now that was original thinking Lyric Man, I played baseball when I was young, but I was slow as butter, couldn't run fast enough, basketball was more my game, you'll do great in the contest with this one, sending my love, take care xxx

    You hit a home run with this poem. I am reminded of my favorite poet Ogden Nash poem Lineup for Yesterday...

    There are a lot of girls playing baseball instead of softball Dave. We saw Shonee Davis from Philly in last years Little League World Series. The team I coach hasn't played any this year yet but we have in the past. Vey believable write.
