“Baseball is not life. It is a fiction, a metaphor. And a ballplayer is a man who agrees to uphold that metaphor as though lives were at stake.”
David James Duncan


It’s selective
Never objective
It’s quite simply
Eeny, Meeny, Miny, Moe
You’re it

It’s why they line them up
Pick the strongest
The ones who can endure
For the Race
The Tournament
The Playoffs

We put jersey’s on them
Have tailgate parties
Cheer and Boo

The Teams
The Truths
The Lies
The Winners
The Losers

This is the game

If you think you’re
Not playing
It’s cause you’re
Letting another
Swing your bat


It’s hard to beat a person who never gives up.”
~ Babe Ruth ~
