Signs

From the book

That Sweet Diamond

by Paul B. Janeczko, Carole Katchen (Illustrator)

The third-base coach

peers

shrugs

(scratches)

brushes his sleeves

encourages

claps

cheers

tugs one earlobe

then the other

whistles

(scratches)

exhorts

rubs his hands

hollers

paces

gazes

turns his back.

 

The batter

steps out:

e needs to see

them all

again.
