Baseball The Way It Was Meant To Be


by Bennett Oberfeld

Remember that outfield that was supposed to be awesome
With Valentine, Cromartie and Dawson?
Cromartie went Japanese
Dawson wore out his knees
And Valentine broke a few hearts so they tossed 'em

Leave it to Bill Veeck to finally fidget
To get attendance to reach double digit
Fireworks, "Ladies' Day"
An organist and half-price pay
And to bat he would send up a midget
