22 March 2017: O beautiful (for the World Baseball Classic)

O beautiful for spacious skies and fields
Where dingers can be done and sent to space!
For dirt-filled diamonds where a man can steal
The square behind the mound—the second base.
For games between the nations of the world
That happen every quart of years or so:
Tonight the States will try to launch balls hurled
By lanzadores de Puerto Rico.
The partly cloudy skies will supervise
The fight between the Island and the States,
And only one will hold the final prize,
So, high are the World Baseball Classic’s stakes.
But as for me, neutrality is out:
For USA, my land, for you, I shout!
