Baseball Does Have Its Spitting Image

Baseball games drive me wacko

Watching the guys chewing tobacco

It would be great to watch good hitting--

But all we see is obnoxious spitting.

Over the popular habit

I hate to cast a pall--

But without chewing and spitting

They probably can't play ball!
