The Autumn Classic

Memories of my first World Series

When I was just a boy of ten
they rolled the tv in the gym
to let our elementary school
watch New York beat San Fran.

With Maris, Mantle, Mays and more,
I learned the joy of keeping score
while drinking in the ambiance
of baseball in the fall.

And ever since I’ve had an itch
to watch the first World Series pitch
and as I pick a team to cheer,
I am a kid again.

The autumn classic casts a spell
as any baseball fan knows well.
Regardless who the teams may be,
it’s fun to watch the best.
