Poem: Opening Day

The field is ready
Grass all cut
Foul lines all chalked
Bases aplenty

The players are all trained
Pitchers, catchers, and fielders
Coaches all coached up
Last year’s stats are not retained

Brand new season
Everyone starts the same
Everyone looking to win
Everyone wants to be champions for a reason

So from the seats of Yankee Stadium
To the ivy of Wrigley Field
The crack of the bat will sound
Echoing through like a concert at the Paladium

Doubleheader, let’s play two
Series sweeps are the best
Hit a homer and jog around
Maybe pose for a moment or few

Let’s win them all
Play till the end of October
Loft that trophy
And play ball!
