State Gold

by Todd Herges

On the occasion of my son winning the USSSA Nebraska state championship, U11 division

Winning it all bestows some

For all of the games well-played;

For all the big metro team thumpings;

Excited hope
For next season and all that will follow
on the way to the show (for sure?);

For past transgressions – especially the mental;

That will hang on hall of fame walls
until future days when all of them fall;

That will live as long
as the players and their parents and their kids.
