An Ode to Baseball Graphs
Oh graphs and visual displays, how thou art
A wondrous tool for baseball fans like me,
Thou bringeth forth the game's rich inner part,
And let us see what is true, meant to be.
Thou bringeth statistics to life before
Our eyes, and let us see the strategy
That wins or loses games; and even more,
Thou showeth us the dance between batter and pitcher free.
Thou maketh the beauty of the field more bright,
As we can see the movements that we love,
And the grace of players turning in the night,
Or the might of a double play glove.
And sometimes with just one simple look,
We grasp the magic of the game we took.
