coach wont stop yelling
"watch the signs from the bench coach!"
but i hate bunting
Brad Epperson

Swing Through
In sheer disbelief
Having swung through the fastball
He lowers his gaze.

Storm Clouds
Thunder makes things clear

supposed to bat third.
Scott Garson

Eagerness for spring: new
grass bends beneath baseball gloves
and one more crisp frost
Greg Beatty

Chris Sabo
Giant white goggles
Captured my attention while
Sorting baseball cards.
Kenneth Nichols

He's a traitor now.
My cousin, with Yankee love.
Jeter, his new crush.
Jenny Poore

Minor League ball park
another fan concussion
mitt not quick enough.
