Two Baseball Limericks
By Jerry Dorbin

Can't Hit, Some Field

A shortstop sunk deep in a slump
Avoided the label of chump
By keeping his eye
On a Texas League fly
Which he snagged at the top of its hump.


Agent of His Own Undoing

An athlete with ponderous glands
Was furtively shifting his hands,
Disgusting himself
By adjusting himself
In front of the left field stands.


JERRY DORBIN lives in Santa Fé, New Mexico, and writes light verse. His account of a 730-foot home run appeared in the Winter issue of EFQ.
