Under the Green Desk Lamp…
Bases and bunts and broken bats,
Bullpens and secret tips of the hat.
Backstops and breaking balls,
And charging the mound after dubious calls.
Check swings, switching up, and clutch hits,
Cut offs, steals, and foul tips.
Dugouts, cleats, and walk-off hits,
Grand slams, tag ups and catcher’s mitts.
Diving grabs and 3-run shots,
Home plate and the batter’s box.
Pitching duels and pennant races,
Pinch runners and shifting places.
Mounds and moonshots and make-up calls,
Money pitches or base on balls.
Errors and bloopers and hard line drives,
Breaking up plays with illegal slides.
Cutters and sliders and throwing the heat,
South paws and road trips and records to beat.
Strikeouts and tag-ups and tough one hoppers,
Infield rookies racing for choppers.
Aces and shutouts and defending the title,
Manufacturing runs and hitting the cycle.
Pitching relief, close or starter,
Young boys with posters of Joe Carter.
Pick off throws and Double plays,
And crowds all chanting ‘Let’s go Jays’.
