My favorite sport.
I feel the excitement
and adrenalin running through me
As we begin the game.
I’m in my favorite position,
The catcher’s spot,
With the batter right beside me.
I sign the pitch to the pitcher
And the pitcher winds up.
I see the ball sailing toward me
And I hear the thud of the ball in my mitt.
But wait, what’s this?
A man stealing second?
I must throw him out!
I pop up as quick as I can,
To zap the ball to the second baseman.
And the umpire calls it… OUT!
As I squat down for the next pitch,
I smile and think,
“This is where I belong,
Right behind Home Plate.”
