The bases are loaded, the crowd is cheering. It's down to the last inning. The gnome glances up at the sun peaking through the garden flowers. Ah, today is a good day for baseball. Actually for this gnome, EVERYDAY is a good day for baseball. He chews his wad of bubblegum and holds the bat at a perfect angle. The pitcher stares him down and he stares right back. Today, he will hit that ball and bring his whole team home. Today they will score the winning point. With a gnod, the pitcher throws the ball. This gnome swings with all his might and there is a sharp crack as the bat meets the ball. The ball soars high over the garden fence. The crowd cheers! He did it!
