12/20/21 : The Baseball Spirit


Christmas Season, a glorious time

Goodwill, merriment and holiday rhymes


From gifts of giving and family cheer

To baseball fans sensing Spring Training is near


Anticipating the crack of the bat

And scurrying to see who hit that !


Pitchers and catchers warming in pens

And fielders sharpening skills to defend


Christmas time, reaffirming our faith

The Hot Stove cooking, no time to waste


Labor agreement - we do need one

The lawyers must be diligent to get it done


Alas no matter even with a lockout

The Baseball gods can’t see us pout


For akin to Christmas there’s Baseball Spirit

Infectious with love we see, smell and hear it


Both spirits can’t be broken, forever alive

They bring us happiness and smiles so wide


For baseball season is just around the bend

And Clearwater is ready to welcome Phillies friends


So as Christmas nears for us all once more

I wish you true joy and future baseball scores


May Christmas swell your heart with joy

Soon see ya at Carpenter to cheer “that a boy” !


Happy Day, Happy Baseball is my passion

Hope the Baseball spirit finds ya alike in fashion !


Merry Christmas !
