A baseball bat 

and countless buckets of balls 

 

He has been waiting for this day 

forever. A chance to show what he's got

 

His sweat running down his face

under the high sun

as his hands, the size

of catcher's mitts

tighten their grips on the bat

 

He is sick of waiting,

their eyes meet one last time, 

the ace pitcher,

the all-state batter.

 

He is ready for the pitch.

Ready to show them all.
