Here's the game.....
Finch Baseball---part 3
Punkin , Aya and Handsome are tossing the ball around just waiting for something to do when Pookie flies in to show Punkin how he’s been working his glove.
“Oh! Can I practice with you?” asks Pookie. “We’d love it if you would.” Says Handsome. So they begin throwing from base to base. “We don’t have enough to really get going. Think we could get some lovies to play?” asks Aya. “Let me fly by a few and see if they want to play.” Says Punkin and off she goes.
After about an hour she comes back and tells everyone, “Hey I got a whole bunch of birds who want to play. Linnies, Lovies, Bourkes, more finches and conures. We’re gonna have lots of fun!!!” It isn’t long before everyone shows up and the fun begins.
Harpo goes up to Punkin and hands her a ball. “Here, use this one today. It’ll be funny” Punkin checks it out and a wicked grin forms on her beak. “Oh yeah, this’ll be good. Who should go first?” “let’s see who’s here. Ahhh, How about Pookie?” “Nope, he’s way to young for the first. Let’s let him get used to things” “That good a friend, eh? Okay…. How about Elise?” “Sure that’ll work. She hasn’t played much ball.” So off the friends go to set up the teams.
Elise steps up to the plate and Punkin was right this girl has never played ball before. She hopes that this works. Punkin calls over to Harpo, “Just an easy toss okay.” Harpo nods and pitches….Elise watches the ball go past with wide eyes. Punkin walks over and has a few words with her and steps back. Harpo pitches again. This time Elise gets a piece of it and it flies to the outfield! She stands there staring because she didn’t hit it very hard at all. Punkin and the rest Yell at her to RUN!!! So she does and barely makes it to first. Rosie catches the ball and tosses it up a couple of times just to tease Elise then throws it to Ernie, who was so excited that his mate got to base, nearly drops the ball but then throws it to Harpo. Pookie gets up to bat and is so excited he nearly drops the bat. Punkin calms him down as does Handsome. Harpo pitches and “STRIKE 1!” Pookie looks embarrassed but is told it’s okay and not to panic. “STRIKE 2!” “Oh no! what do I do?” “Try to hit the ball, it’s okay” “STRIKE 3!” Pookie hangs his head, but Punkin tells him he’ll do better next time. He did real good for his first time out. Rosebud is next up and she too strikes out. Punkin glares at Harpo because he knows these guys don’t usually play. None the less, even Rodeo strikes out. Punkin goes out and takes the ball. “You wait, buddy. You just wait.”
