Opening day! April 3, 2017Posted by vsap in Blogroll, Major League Baseball, Uncategorized.
There’s little more exciting than opening day,
beginning baseball’s grind of a one-hundred-and-sixty-two-game season.
The fresh grass is sweet and hope is in the air
and anything is possible on opening day!
The deals are made and the team is set;
with sliders working and bats twirling;
you’ll know a Texas Leaguer from a screamer —
Everyone has twice the hustle to get what they can get!
Where is the atmosphere more electric?
The hot dogs have the deepest flavor and beer is cold going down.
And the tone of the crowd, whether outside milling or inside yelling
as the hitter stretches a single into a double, that’s what we want!
As the innings stack up and strategy takes shape
whether the crowd gets restless when things go awry
or their continuously on their feet as the home team soars…
Anything is possible on opening day!
