This one’s for you, tee-ball dads!
By Lawrence “Mack in Texas” Hall
A little moppet scampers around the tee
Waving her plastic bat as a warrior’s sword
Or as a fairy-wand to magic the day
Her first-ever tee-ball lesson with Dad
He places the ball upon the tee; she swings –
“Now wait until Daddy takes his hand away…”
He didn’t know the bat was all that hard!
He rubs his hand and adjusts his cap; she laughs –
At her daddy the Saturday tee-ball hero
