"The coach poured the / extra balls out of a / red drawstring bucket / bag, then the kids took / the mini-field forever / shagging long, left, right."
"I am a fan. I have not always been. / But I could not point to the moment when / I became more than just a rider on / A bandwagon whose station is long gone."
"We cheer for hits that make their hitters dash / Around the diamond, or that with a splash / Allow the batters access to each base. / Hits are surprises; outs are commonplace."
