The pitch of a lifetime

His life had boiled down to this one moment Nerves shaking but could never show it A lifetime of practice to get to this fall day Always saying goodbye & never getting to stay The half dirt covered plate at his feet As thousands waiting to leave their seat Years of not knowing if he could ever get here He looks up and his mind never this clear Cheers all around fade away Today was his day He has but a single task The question yet to be asked His stance he choose to switch And from a knee here comes the pitch She said yes
