Sunday 160-A Home Run Is Made














'Crack',
A perfect contact is made,
The ball sails with speed limit beyond 35 m/h,
All the way
Cross the fence,
'Run',
...
Shout the crowd,
A Home Run is done!

Coming from a big baseball family I have to say I love your poem. There is something so profoundly American and heartfelt about baseball. it typifies everything American. I am so glad you shared. Hope you had a great Sunday Jingle!

A measly 35mph? Definitely not a pro.

Thanks, Jingle, you brought a smile to my face.
