"Every Out" is an audiosonnet written and performed by Anthony J Fuchs.

The poem was posted to YouTube on 3 September 2009.


The Phillies played the Mets that August day,
and led by two runs in the final frame;
then, by a stroke of luck, the greatest play
to grace the infield dirt ended the game.
Luis Castillo led off second base,
and Daniel Murphy inched away from first;
Brad Lidge came set, and turned, prepared to face
Jeff Francoeur, who would see the lead reversed.
The runners went so neither one would lag;
the batter lined a shot toward centerfield;
the second-baseman caught it, touched the bag,
tagged Murphy, and the triple-play was sealed.
Eric Bruntlett recorded every out,
and the game was over without a doubt.
