Monterey Wildcats - Poem by Jacquie StewartHeimann

The searing sun beats down
A birds cry shrieks from overhead
The silence stretches out...
Broken by the shout 'Batter Up! '

A hush falls over the crowd
Faces turn expectantly
The bat cracks, the ball soars
And the season begins

Parents shout encouragement
The team cheers wildly
As the child grins from safe at first
Hot and dusty, the game goes on

Balls caught, pop-ups missed
Strike outs, home runs
Stealing second, bases loaded
Sliding in, clouds of dust

Boys and girls, genders alike
When the ball cap is on
Smack the shoulder of their teammate
As he crosses the plate home

Dusty, tired, satisfied
Win or lose, a game well played
The team gathers in a circle
Chanting together 'We are Wildcats! '
