Softball metaphor

He was trying to make it to second base
But he struck out
She made him think he could increase his batting average
But she squashed his hopes into diamond dust
He used to bat 1000
But she threw him a curve ball
And he swung and he missed
He was hoping for a fastball
Or even getting walked
At least he'd get to first base
And then he could steal his way home to score
He thought maybe she just didn't like softball
Maybe she was against homeruns and rounding the bases
Until she got a contract saying she couldn't be traded for a younger player
Or maybe she didn't like the idea of an umpire watching the game
But what he didn't know, and what she didn't tell him
Was that she played for the other team
