First Baseball Game
Nervous as I walk up to the plate.
The ball speeding at me I swing
The umpire says strike one!
Ball comes speeding at me
Faster than the last I swing
bat and the ball
Hit. I run
Then to second and I slide into
The base. Everyone
Chants my name. then in the 9th inning
I make the winning catch and thatís
Only the beginning.
