The game of baseball and close and almost,
Where devoted fans love the chance to boast.
Line drive or pop fly could be hit or out.
Fans cheer a scratch hit or a mighty clout.
Check swing, on the line or another foul ball.
Fans on their feet, waiting for the ump’s call.
Homerun or catch at the wall, how’s the wind blowing?
Fans always have the answers as they are all knowing.
Outside corner, ball four or strike three?
Don’t know what the umpire’s call will be.
“What if” and “should have” always part of the game.
Such a small difference between fame and blame.
