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,
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.
