But the pitcher just ignored the call,
And kept tossing her the ball.
It was clear, beyond a doubt,
She didn't want to strike her out!
The crowed sighed as each ball passed,
In support of the lass.
Cheers of encouragement filled the air,
From all the people gathered there.
Then, SMACK! SHE DID IT! SHE GOT A HIT!
But it landed in the Pitcher's mit.
You'd think that ball was a bomb,
The way she dropped it to the ground.
She dropped that ball from her mitt,
Then awkwardly, SAT ON IT!
"RUN! RUN TO FIRST!" The pitcher squealed,
As she tossed the ball to left field.
Jeanie stopped at every base,
But the Robins pushed her to the next place!
Fielders fumbled purposely,
As Jeanie ran gleefully!
As Jeanie ran across the plate,
The crowd cheered:
'YOU DID GREAT!!!'
Jeanie's face beamed like the sun.
"I DID IT MOM!
A HOME RUN!"
God was coaching that day in May
When the Robins and the Blue Birds played.
Both teams won, beyond a doubt.
God bless Jeanie, the fourth out!
Dedicated to all the "Jeanies" in the world:
May all your days be 'home runs'!
