Baseball shows you where life is at… And what matters most, is that you go up to bat. Perhaps you’ll strike out – Maybe you’ll hit a home run. But if you only get to walk… It’s about having fun. What’s in your swing? Is it with all your might? Do you play with passion? Are you in for the fight? Go into the outfield – Be part of the team… It’s what you’ve got to do, to fulfill your dream. You have to give it your all. And be ready to work. There is no easy street, flooded with perks. Everything comes at a price, And this you must know – If it seems easy now, You’ll have it harder – when you grow. Invest time base-to-base. Pay your dues and respect – For that is how you must play, if you wish to collect a check. Catch the errors of your ways, And be on pitch every time. Be a good sport. Don’t pout and whine. Show up and be there, Leave your ego at the door. It’s not all about you, Or how much you score. It’s about taking the time, To be thankful for blessings – And to have faith and belief, And no second guessings. Life’s about sharing and giving, Expressing how you feel, Being truthful to everyone, And keeping it real. Life’s not about losses, Or each victory – It’s about doing something that matters, With your soul peaceful and free. Life’s about caring and loving, Consciousness and thought, Positive actions – And giving it all you’ve got. It’s about taking the time, To say ‘I’ll be there for you…’ And honoring your word, In everything you do. You may be on a team, But you’ll be all alone – If you don’t remember what matters, when you slide into home.
