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 !
