Dialogue: Jacque Jones and a Cubs Fan

by Stu Shea

“Today I make a promise from my soul

That I will try my best in my new role.

I will not swing at sliders aimed at my back foot,

Nor run the bases like I’m wearing gumboots.

Or make a six-hop throw toward the plate

That never gets the runner ’cause it’s late.

I hope that I can keep this oath.”



“You and me both.”
