25 Feb 2017: A lovely day for spring’s premiere

A lovely day for spring’s premiere event!
The lineup cards are filled; the tickets sold
To fans who’ve waited months for game’s advent;
Through the show’rs and bouts of bitter cold.
A former Ray will lead off for L.A.,
Whose second baseman skills are vital to
A team that wants to make it all the way
In autumn, when the trophy hoist is due.
Another man, who showed up last July:
‘Tis Andrew Toles! A spark plug whose return
Is sung in praises from the mountains high,
Along with others looking to upturn.
And as the King returns to take the hill,
So does the game’s eternal stream of thrill.
