And so a brand new season starts
in Wrigley Field and Fenway Park,
in stadiums across the land
where diamonds woo our love.
Yes, baseball's hibernation's past.
It's time to hear "Play Ball!" at last.
And cheer our team and fuel our dreams
that this might be the year.
It's time the "boys of summer" play.
This really is like New Year's Day.
Regrets are gone while hopes run high.
Let's all sing "Auld Lang Syne."
And let's resolve to not be sad
when our home team is playing bad.
What matters most is how we feel
because we love this game.
