He has a love for baseball
And he knows well the game.
He loves the young boys on his team
and they love him the same.
He teaches them the rules
all about good sportsmanship.
How to hold a baseball bat
and where they need to grip.
How to stop a grounder
and to make a double play.
When to run to second
and when you need to stay.
What this coach is teaching
Isn’t just baseball.
He’s teaching them to do their best
and rise each time they fall.
These boys that he is coaching
learn what isn’t taught in schools.
The importance of good teamwork
and of playing by the rules.
They learn to do their very best;
To play hard and to win.
A baseball coach teaches boys
what it takes to be good men.
