sample poem, featured in –

101  Sports Poems – The Poems“ & “Nice Thing ‘Bout Getting Old(er)





update notation: 032412:

“baseball” is one of my favorite sports poems and is featured in more than one collection of mine, as it serves so many purposes and interests in my life

though not featured in my upcoming new sports prose-poem work, “10 sports lessons i can smile at now” it adds another layer to recurring episodes of baseball in my life 😉

additionally, i have a followup post, about baseball and my thoughts of how and why it is much more to me than just a game

sports itself has meaning for mean beyond playing for a win, and memories of baseball with my dad and others, mean much to me


summer, the fourth of july, and now the all star game!

it must be baseball 😉


if the words endure, they do so because they link the links –



Playing hardball

takes a little guts.

Fast flying pitches

creasing your chest.

Balls hit like rockets

skidding the infield

or launched to the outfield.

Base runners

like rabbits to

beat the throw.

And then the full count.

Bottom of the ninth.

Two out.

Like Life, you sometimes

work your way to this

moment of truth.

Play ball.
