The outlook wasn’t brilliant for the rec league team that day;
The score stood four to two, with but one inning more to play,
And then Matilda’s safe at first and Ginger does the same,
A hopeful silence fell upon the parents at the game.
My Dad stood up and packed the drinks and cooler in the van,
He grabbed the dog and hollered at my sister, Leslie Anne,
“Get in the car we’re gonna go.” I kinda noticed that,
He musta not have known or cared that I was next at bat.
