Let’s play ball!

It was the biggest baseball game for the home team.
The crowd let out a cheer, and they said, “Let’s go, team!”

Ronnie loved to play for the home team.
The smallest in the league, but he always played with heart and soul each game.

When Ronnie came to bat, you could hear the crowd sing.
Home Run Ronnie, Home Run, Run Ronnie, Home Run.
Home Run Ronnie, Home Run, Run Ronnie, Home Run.
Home Run Ronnie, Home Run, Run Ronnie, Home Run.

The game was going south for the home team.
The crowd let out a cheer, and they said, “Come on team!”

One inning left to play for the home team.
Two outs on the board with bases loaded.
They were down by three that day.

When Ronnie came to bat, you could hear the crowd sing.
Home Run Ronnie, Home Run, Run Ronnie, Home Run.
Home Run Ronnie, Home Run, Run Ronnie, Home Run.
Home Run Ronnie, Home Run, Run Ronnie, Home Run.

Ronnie swung and he hit. Like a rocket ship the ball went sailing up through the sky.

“Well it’s been a great day for a baseball game, folks. Unfortunately it looks like our home team is going to lose this game. It’s the bottom of the ninth, two outs, and we’ve only got one more batter.”

“Home Run Ronnie steps up to the plate.”
“Let’s see if he can prove why he got that name, Home Run Ronnie.”

“It’s the first pitch.”

“Strike ball!”
“Ohh! Strike 1!”

“Ronnie looks a little shaken after that fast ball.”
“Here comes the second pitch.”

“Strike 2.”
“Ohh! Strike 2!”
“It is not looking good, folks.”

“Ronnie regroups.”
“He gets the sign from the coach.”
“Steps back into the batter’s box.”

“Here’s the pitch.”
“It’s a hit. He hit the ball!”
“And—and could it be?”

“Yes! It looks like—it’s going way back . . .”
“way back . . . way back!”

“Yes, it’s a home run!”
“Home Run Ronnie’s just won this baseball game.”
“It’s unbelievable, folks!”

“Well, how about that?”
“Ronnie, tell the folks how you feel.”

“Well, I just want to thank my team, I mean I couldn’t have done it without you guys.”

“Umm, my family, my mom, my dad, my brother and sister, and let’s see, my dog, and maybe my cat, my pet hamster.”

“And, well, if Santa is listening I’d really love a new mitt.”
“This one is kind of getting a bit small, I mean, I . . . you know I’m a growing boy and stuff and . . . and this glove is not going to fit forever.”

“I’m thinking maybe one of those high-end uhhh, Nokona Buffalo series something, something like A-Rod or Jeter has.”

Home Run Ronnie
Home Run Ronnie
Home Run Ronnie
Home Run Ronnie
Home Run Ronnie, Home Run, Run Ronnie, Home Run.
