Pitchers, catchers, outfielders, and more,
Infielders, rookies, and media galore,
All with a common goal in mind,
To put their hard work on the line.
Spring training is where they all assemble,
Waiting to be selected come this April.
Their baseball prowess they have to prove,
Every minute of every day an upward move.
Ted Williams had to claw his way to the top,
A constant grinding to show what he’s got.
Baseball is a merciless business to some.
For those who go home their days are done.
But for those who stay, congratulations!

Bottom of the 9th. Bases loaded. Tie game. Two outs. Full count. And the capacity crowd exploded! Ball over the fence!
