I like to swing the bat,
to hit balls.
The batting cages are
fun at first,
not having a clue
how the ball will come
flying toward me.
It is easier to swing
and hit
when I see the pitcher.

I see him.

I stand alone,
no pinch hitter,
in the batter's box,
unable to stop him
from throwing.

I have to swing.
