State Gold

by Todd Herges

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

Winning it all bestows some

Pride
For all of the games well-played;

Satisfaction
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?);

Redemption
For past transgressions – especially the mental;

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

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