With Baseball hotdogs on the run
Caught up in, excitement and fun
Watch where you go
Before you know
You might slip and fall on your bun!
Hyperbole is a sports cast
Announcers have egos so vast
My ears must have rest
From this lambasting pest
Collection of morons amassed
Author's note: Is it getting worse, or is it just me?
Don't know if you've noticed but life is like a baseball game
You start out as a rookie, then get through the middle frames
You start to notice the signs
It's the bottom of the ninth
Seems like a quick game but hope for extra innings remains
In our heads the season was far from over
so we played a game in late September.
He said, "before the sun sets
can we not take a rest?"
"But we already are, this is baseball remember?"
Come let's celebrate the fourth of July
With baseball, hot dogs, and Mom's apple pie
We're sure to ignite
Fireworks at night
So head on over, we'll light up the sky
Baseball is on my mind more,
When frigid winds freeze to the core,
Seems eons away,
Snow shovels strike out, wood bats score!
Not all my hits are home runs,
many of them miss the bat;
specators respond with boos...
right there I expect to lose,
and getting angry, I toss my cap.
I knew a man with a sailors hat
Fat and chubby, smelled like a rat
kissed him out of stupidity,
now he's down on one knee,
Somebody give me a baseball bat!
A memory I'll NEVER forget, by crikey
Jackie stealing home, my hero almighty
Eleven at the time
Baseball's ultimate crime
Forever and always etched in my psyche
(With the old Montreal Royals of the International League in 1946)
my math teachers fav'rite cat
likes to wear a baseball hat
when the class stares it down
it will hiss with a frown
red sox man are where its at.
We're glad the baseball season is over.
For Mariner fans, no fields of clover.
Won half as many as we lost.
Tickets too high at half the cost.
Next season look for a big makeover.
For Linda-Marie's Sport Limerick contest won #4
Opening day is finally here
fans will be drinking most of the beer
Red Sox and Yankees will meet
that game should be a real treat
you’ll see how rookies deal with the fear
In the land of fairies and gnomes
Was a gnome often seen on the phone
An up to date fairy
With armpits quite hairy
Like all baseball players was spit prone

God said, " Baseball between us sounds swell"!
Satan replied, "Your team, just will not, do well"!
"I know Mantle and Ruth play for you
but there ain't a whole lot, they can do
cause the Umpires, are all down here, in Hell"!
A catcher with much on his mind
approaches and asks are you blind?
control is the issue
and these are the Fish who
embody the worst of mankind.
I always wanted to be a baseball player for the New York Mets
But I never wanted to try my best so I just looked like a hopeless stem
One day I'll show them all
I'ma be the only one standing tall
As for the dreams that can be obtained right now, I'm going full force at them.
wait a minute this isn’t baseball
I won't be able to hit that ball
bigger than marble
in hole it will fall
I'll swing in that hole the ball will fall
Raul Mondesi is back from wherever he’d been hid
Storming into the Big Leagues and making another bid
But he played over a decade ago
Guess for me time hasn’t gone slow
And the rising star this year is Mondesi’s kid
José, Edwin, and Josh are ready to claim the crown
Best team in baseball, they'll become renowned
Onward and upward
No stopping this herd
Forget the Yanks and Red Sox in their pretty ball gowns
Spring training is starting way down south
This is the year, “Go Blue Jays” we'll shout
All the way to the Series
World Champs my dearies
Finally since 1992, a big celebration we'll flout
Batter up was the call from the Ump
Up came a fellow who was quite plump
The pitcher then threw
Strike one!, then Strike two!
He missed the third ball and fell on his rump!
A baseball fanatic, I am, I am
Blue Jays are in flight, holy hot damn
Bautista and crew
The ball they tattoo
Winners down to the very last man

Seventh Inning Stretch
Written: by Tom Wright
I once knew a man, first name Harry,
A “Cubbie” fan, last name was Carey
He sang at each Cub game,
When the 7th inning came,
And was never mistaken for a canary;
“Take me out to the ball game”
This guy's been a baseball fanatic since I was ten
Jackie Robinson was my hero, first man of colour back then
History in the making
He was shaking' and baking'
Most teams weren't accepting but my Montreal Royals were..amen!
Texas is renowned for cowboys and cattle
And riding bareback without any saddle
Not winning ball teams
But inevitably it seems
Hopefully the Jays will win this epic battle
