Batter UP

If baseball were life and innings were seasons, I'd sometimes play the Center- a neutral spot with few extremes, time enough for Short Stop dreams. Don't care to be First- it takes too much ego Second is always forgotten. Three is definitely, surely out evading the Third degree. Right is that nev--er/ne--ver land-- a place your brain goes to die. Of all positions and spaces of Play, I prefer to be out in Left Field. There's no place Home. (Always keep the ball on your eye.)
