One must love the game to understand the feeling. Good afternoon Ladies and Gentlemen Boys and Girls. The Los Angeles Dodgers and the Houston Astros Welcome you the MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL'S 2017 WORLD SERIES. LET'S PLAY BALL!
I woke up this morning, Believe me, I was ready to play. For those of you Who are unaware Today's a gargantuan day. Electrifying excitement Alive and in the air. There's nothing else quite like it For anyone to compare. Pine tar, rosin fragrance And that of fresh cut grass. The end of the baseball season Has now come to pass. Magnificent sound when a baseball Contact’s a baseball bat. Completing a walk-off homer With a doffing of the cap. The AL meets the NL In world serious matter. The loser goes home all alone Disgraced and completely shattered. Don't think for a moment It was all fun and games. It was a tough and very long season. Even heartbreaking pain. There was plenty of travel Cold and heat. Upset victories and Humiliating defeat. Baserunning blunders Pitches gone wild. Tears of joy While others cried like a child. Playing for a championship Is tougher than seems. Now it has come this Living a baseball dream. There were 30 teams that started Now there are only 2 teams left. Now we're going to crown the one Who proves to be the best. God bless America Home of the brave and free. Many gave up everything For this me. Stand up and remember Those who have departed. It's the best of seven series So let's get this party started. Let's play ball!
