Derby King

alonso haiku s

When I saw Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday words, “pretty ugly”, I couldn’t help thinking of my baseball team, the New York Mets, 13 1/2 games out of first place.  But there are some bright spots…

Pete Alonso, New York Mets first baseman, won the Home Run Derby at the All Star Game yesterday.

There’s a long history of baseball haiku, so every once in awhile I indulge.  Also good to get back to some drawing.

You can see some of my other baseball haiku here and here and here.
