Baseball Christmas Poem
The stands are all empty, no cheering can be heard
No one is on first, second or third
The mound is all lonely, no pitcher in sight
Its Christmas eve, no games to be played, it just doesn't seem right
But wait, what do my wondering eyes see land on the mound
It looks like a sleigh and eight tiny reindeer coming down with a leaping bound
I was shocked as I heard him call them by name, Jimmy , Ryan, Brett, Caleb, Jacob , Brant, Julius,Karter and Hunter
Take your positions now,the game is about to get started, make sure to keep your eyes on the runner
The boys took there spots on the field as Santa suited up himself and all of his reindeer
Get ready, he said the games about to start, I hope everyones here
They all looked amazed as Santa said, Okay batter up, the game has begun
Jimmy was up first, Santa knew he was hoping for a home run!!
Strike one! said the umpire, as Jimmy looked kind of shocked
Strike two!! Jimmy thought to himself this Santa guy as a pitcher really rocks
Contact was made with the ball and out in the field it went really fast
But up flew Blitzen, Wow what a catch!!
Jimmys great hit by him was not going past
Up next came Hunter, he knew those reindeer could fly
A nice grounder he thought would slip right on by
But Rudolph had other plans for his ground ball hit
He bent right down with his nose glowing and caught it right in his mitt!!
Two outs! Santa knew this would be a breeze
Up next was Ryan, he thought to himself, I am bringing this santa guy to his knees
Strike one, strike two said the Umpire with just a little too much joy!!
Next pitch made contact right to Donner, who caught it and said your outta here boy!!
The team knew they had some catching up to do, bottom of 7 with very few hits
Santa said lets get this game moving, I have toys to deliver in a bit
Man on 3rd, two outs on the score board,Santas team was up by one
the batter felt the pressure, he knew losing was not too much fun
Santa had a mad curve ball but his knuckle ball was the best
Full count said the umpire, the batter thought is this some kind of test
Santa wants me to swing he thought to himself
The ball came in fast, strike 3 said the umpire as he turned into an elf!!
The Christmas Eve game was over, Santa and his team had won
The boys thought losing to Santa was really a lot of fun
Santa hopped in his sleigh, roped up his reindeer and flew out of sight
The boys were shocked when Santa yelled Merry Christmas to you all and next time we play at least put up a fight!!!
