{Tuesday Talk // Keep your eye on the ball}


Sunday evening these two enjoyed some time outside playing a little soft toss, batting and catching. I loved watching and snapping a few photos of them playing together. The weather was perfect and the sun was setting creating the perfect glow. That little bit of time had me longing for summer even more.

The first thing I remember is the game that I love

A man on a diamond with a golden glove
Daddy with me in the cheap seats above saying
"Boy, keep your eye on the ball"
The crack of the bat, the stadium's roar
We were up on our feet for the tie-breaking score
I said, "Daddy, I know what you brought me here for"
He said, "Good, I hoped you'd hear the call"



"Life's a fastball, belt high, coming right down the middle
Don't stand there and let it go by
Swing hard and aim for the stands"





 My field of dreams was covered in stone

An old gravel parking lot next to our home
Dad on the mound till the daylight was gone saying
"Boy, keep your eye on the ball
Cause it's, 'Hey batter, hey batter, swing batter, swing'
The world is an infield always chattering
If you don't concentrate, they'll spoil your timing
And you'll walk away cussing them all"



"Life's a fastball, belt high, coming right down the middle
Don't stand there and let it go by
Swing hard and aim for the stands
And thank God for your fans
Thank God for your fans
Thank God for your fans
Thank God for your fans"






Dad threw a party when I got the call

All the years on the farm team finally paid off
Now I'm in the big leagues aiming for the fall
Every summer is a long playoff run.
As I walked to the plate, I look in the stands
I see myself and I see my old man
I hear my family and all of my friends cheering
"Boy, keep your eye on the ball"



It's a fastball, belt high, coming right down the middle
I'm gonna mail one to the grand stands
Good glory, this one's for the fans



For the fans
Thank God for the fans
Thank God for the fans
And my old man
My old man
