In Cooperstown its there, Getting in is so rare. Playing in the late 1800’s, 5 In front of crowds that were smaller than a hundred. Baseball started in a very way, people need to know how to play.

HERO Hit a huge drive to centerfield for an out, a three-run homer one handed 5 synecdoche into the bleachers, got on with an error, and almost tore Joe Pepitone’s head 10 off

with a line dive single. This poem is talking about a player, Jackie Robinson, that was a hero for his team. He did everything that he could have done to win the game.
