WHOLE NEW BALL GAME
Well Coach, you see, it's like this....
We're just in a bad slump right now.
Our timing is way off. We're hitting
too many foul balls and snibbers.
We're just not connecting like we should.
We can't even get to first base.
At times, we get the urge to hang up
our cleats and call it quits. But, we know
you still haven't given up on us. You
hope in us even though our self confidence
As a player-coach, you played the game once
and understand how miserable we feel when we
continue to make an error in game after game.
During the time you played the game, you could
have become the greatest hitter of all time, but
instead, you sought to illustrate the art of sacrificing.
We'll probably never understand, much less duplicate,
the sacrifices you made, but because of them, every
day becomes for us...a whole new ball game.
