Indians Ball Game On TV

Announcer yells,
“ball four, another walk
with another run scored.”
Crowd goes wild;
Noise distorted as announcer continues
Describing what the batters are doing;
Stats are stated
Stories told until
Batter strikes outs the inning
“Bottom of eighth a come back,” he says
As TV goes into commercial
As I sit and watch the Indian Home Opener

April 1st Prompt: Former United Stated Poet Laureate Robert Hass has said, “Poets mostly … listen and record what they are hearing or have just heard.” What are you hearing just now? Record it in a poem.
