So cute, LNC. Mothers are always proud of their children's athletic efforts, even if they miss the ball. Your poem made me laugh, dear. I need to call you. Love, Carolyn

Ahhh, this is darling!! I really enjoyed when my son did this so long ago. He was their best catcher but he couldn't bat worth a darn!

I could just see Tatum O'Neal and her teammates while I read this nice little limerick. It looks like a good one.
