It's throwing batting practice fun.
It's third bullpen of the August afternoon, fun.
It's showing up first thing in the morning to hit fly balls
to a player who has already graduated, so he can be sharp
for walk on tryouts in the fall, fun.
It's throwing seed on the field after a hurricane,
hoping to hit the sweet spot between torrential downpour
and gentle rain, because there is no irrigation on the field yet, fun.
It's mowing three times a week, fun,
because the result is more outgrowth and less upgrowth
for our still mostly dirt diamond.
It's picking up spent coffee grounds twice a week,
and spreading hundreds of pounds on the infield, fun.
