      SEASON

****************************************************************************************************************
                                           AN "ASA" UMPIRE
                                              "BLUE PRIDE"
                      Of All the Thankless Jobs on Earth,whenever Duty Calls;
            The Worst is His or Her who must Decide between the Strikes and Balls.
                    Who always has to Say at Once if it is Foul or Fair.
                 When some Determined Player Hits the SoftBall in the Air?
           The Man or Women whose Eyes must Rove the Field and Cover every Base;
                    And Figure if the Defense or the Runner Won the Race.
                He or She is the SoftBall Umpire who must be Prepared to Talk;
                          When there is an Argument about a Run or Walk.
            But Whether Crowds Stand Up and Cheer,or Politely Boo and Shout.
              He or She are the Ones the SoftBall World Can Never Be WITHOUT.
                                "RESPECT YOUR GAME OFFICIALS"

                                         FOR THEY ARE FRIENDS OF MINE.

                                         AND GOD ,THERE IS ONE MORE THING
                                             I WISH THAT YOU COULD DO:
                                         HOPE YOU DON’T MIND ME ASKING
                                           PLEASE BLESS MY COMPUTER TOO.

                                            YOU SEE,THAT LITTLE METAL BOX
                                        HOLDS MORE THAN ODDS AND ENDS:
