Make Baseball Fun

Which way do I run ?
Where do I go from here ?
Tell me which direction
Where do I go from here?
I hit the ball and have to run
But which direction do I go ?
Remember, this is new to me
I’m five, and I’m afraid I do not know.

He hit the ball, what do I do ?
Don’t let it come to me ?
I don’t know where to throw it
And I really have to pee.
Oh..here it comes, what do I do?
glove down and bend my knees
I have to stay and focus
Will someone help me please?

I’ve got the ball..now throw to first
Jeez, that’s a long, long way
I’ll never get it over there
At least not the way I play

Drop the bat….and run like mad
Where’s coach?…jeez, that’s a long way
I’ll never make it down to first
Not the way I run today

Listen to those parents
They’re screaming, wow…they’re loud
Who are they all screaming at ?
They’re quite a noisy crowd

I can make it over there
With the ball faster if I run
I don’t want to throw it bad
Then it wouldn’t be no fun
I can get it over there
I run faster than I throw
What are all the parents yelling for?
Is there something I should know?

This is only one hit ball
It’s the first game of the year
This is what a t-ball coach
Has to go through for the year
Each child is not focused
Every one is full of fear
It’s when they roll the ball across the field
That makes the game so dear

They run to third before first base
Then they cut across the mound
Through the season they shed many tears
Enough to make a grown man drown
They try to do what coaches say
They aren’t the fastest or the best
But these kids, they are true all stars
Starting out on this huge quest

Remember folks, it’s baseball
It’s a game and nothing more
Make sure it’s fun and sporting
Please remember who it’s for
They don’t know where to throw it
They don’t know where to run
But support them in their efforts
And help make baseball…fun

  1. Carl…glad you liked it…but, Tigers rule. Yanks lost far too many senior players this past season and should be rebuilding for a few years before they approach even the level of the Blue Jays. I have a feeling we are going to agree to disagree all season….this could be the beginning of a great friendship. I have friends in Vegas, NY, Florida and all over England who are Yankee fans…good luck on the season, let’s hope they get a wild card spot.
