My husband suggested recently that I read an article in one of his sports magazines, about one of my favourites on the Toronto Blue Jays, Edwin Encarnación, of whom great things seem to be expected.
The following ditty was written a year or two ago, maybe, perhaps...at least as far as I can remember. It was certainly written long before that magazine article was written. But I've always liked shy, quiet Edwin, and have hoped he would be headed for great things.
I also like the fact that he is from the Dominican Republic, a place we have visited and enjoyed, and where we liked the people very much.
With Major League Baseball's opening day looming, and us with other plans, here's a tip of the cap to our Edwin, which I'm posting for Open Link Monday at the Imaginary Garden with Real Toads.
Our Edwin En-car-na-ci-ón
worked hard his home run skills to hone.
Then he tied, number three
in the whole MLB.
Let’s hope he does not break a bone!
