Hit Parade

Dying quail, tweener,
Texas leaguer, duck snort, gork.
Synonyms of hits.

Music To My Ears

Blurred ash bats hum
Rawhide whistles past my ear
These sounds bring me peace

Barry Bonds

I don't take steroids.
My head was always this big.
See my baseball card?

Opening Day

Ah, Opening Day
A Spring of Hope Stirs Within
Each Tired Baseball Heart

Pitchers and Catchers

Come spring time I wait,
Just to hear three lovely words.
Pitchers and catchers.

Trade Deadline

Every July,
Young fans do not understand
Why their heroes leave.

Home Run Derby

A soaring baseball
Knows not why people cheer it.
It is deep and gone.

Monday, June 13, 2005


Muddy baseball fields
Drown the hopes of all involved.
No ballgame today.

Little League

The parents write checks.
The coach searches for sponsors.
The players just play.

The Wait Is Over

Too long we waited.
Many died before they saw
The Sox as World Champs.
