Baseball Players I Remember...

Baseball Players I Remember (I Watched Baseball 1-4 Years as a Child. I Collected Cards. My Favorite Team Was The Braves)

Ron Gant. I remember he bent his knees
in a weird, intriguing way while batting.
I think I have no memory of his face,
seems it was always hidden in shadow.
He seemed inconsistent and distracted
and impulsive, but powerful
and determined, to me.

I thought I would list 5-10 players
that I remember. But now maybe
it's more interesting to just list 1 player
partly because I didn't expect Ron Gant.
I feel surprised I'm writing this poem.
