The Cathedrals of Baseball are open
For business across the nation.
The lesser houses of worship
Have been open for some time now.

The high school chapels,
Farley Field,
To name two in New Orleans.
Are active and filled with congregants.

Some of the churches are open,
Built for the college crowds
Holding nine-inning revivals,
Giving the lesser seminarians
A chance to discern
Their vocations.

But today, the Cathedrals
Opened their gates,
As the faithful filed into the
Pews, breaking bread,
And the occasional donut-hamburger.

The Boys of Summer are back.
