Haiku Poem – カブスの田澤投手

ball dances
Tazawa pitch drops
batt misses

(Ben version)
しょうねんば たざわ よんだら ボール まう

(Michiko version)
また いっきゅう パワー ぜんかい ストライク

The day after the Fourth of July, I went to see a professional baseball game. The game was between the Iowa Cubs and the Memphis Cardinals. The Cubs fell way behind early. Then, a Japanese player named Junichi Tazawa emerged for the Cubs. He is a pitcher. He did very well at the end of the game and helped the Cubs to win. He threw the ball really well even though he acted like his shoulder hurt every time. Many people said that was just his habit. Tazawa pitched for many years in Boston and then worked with several other teams before joining the Cubs organization. Too bad for Tazawa, the Angels let him go before hiring Shohei Ohtani. I hope Tazawa has a good career with the Cubs.
