The Boogie Woogie Baseball Boy, The Ko-Killer Bee

(Sung to the tune and beat of “The Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy”;

If only Bette Midler or The Andrews Sister were here now.)

Song parody and lyrical misappropriation by

Bill McCurdy of The Pecan Park Eagle

He was a famous second baseman out in Houston way
He had a boogie style that no one else could play
He was the top man at his craft
But then his number was called, and he took off for The Hall

He’s bound for Cooperstown, as we sound Reveille
He’s the boogie-woogie baseball boy, the Ko-Killer Bee

They made him wait three years because they don’t give a damn,
The writers think that they’re the gods, but they’re just sliced ham

We Astro fans all understand
Because this day he’s now in, pass the gin, hire a band

Craig’s in at Cooperstown, as we sound Reveille
He’s the boogie-woogie baseball boy called Craig Biggio!

B! B! B! B! “B” for Biggio-nee!

Not-nam-ing-Bagwell-too’s – the-on-ly-ba-LON-ey!

    Jeff should be voted in next

    Here’s a thought. Once Bagwell IS inducted, how long will it be before a third “mostly Astro” who is recommended to wear the Astro cap become a Hall of Famer? That is a scary thought, but only emphasizes the overall mediocrity of MLB in Houston. Something has got to change! (Team is still many games under .500 for its 50+ year life and has no World Series wins and only one appearance.) A winner in Houston (as we saw during the Houston best seasons in the late 90s-to mid 00s) would fill MMP every night. Don’t give me that old “Houston is a football town” excuse. It doesn’t seem to apply to the college programs. There is room for both sports and if the Astros ever reached the level they aspire both sports would share the stage and if the Texans failed to keep up would find themselves the “seasonal” sport.

    • Bill McCurdy Says:

      Couldn’t agree more, Greg. – Of course, we Astro fans always recall that had not Joe Morgan been traded away – and Nolan Ryan chased away – that these two HOF greats would already be there in Cooperstown wearing Astros gear. Still, only one actual HOF guy in 53 years is a pretty poor batting average statement about the overall quality of our local talent flow.

    How many career Mets in the HOF?
