Ode to That Ancient Account Back in Houston

Dan was nimble

Dan was quick

He beat the fine

But the toss did stick

Thanks again to our not-so-anonymous-now contributor and friend Larry Dierker for this item and several other story-source tales to come in future columns. Our contributions through each other – to each other – in the name of the game we all have loved so well – and for so long – is one of the best known “secrets” we all protect in the interest of making sure that both the history -and the game’s arcane mystery – have both been preserved.

One Response to “Oh Danny Boy!”

  1. Larry Dierker Says:

    “Sure I like the fans. We’d be lost without them. They always know when to pinch hit and when to change pitchers. They know when to bunt and steal. I just wish one of them would put down his beer and come down and help me in a tough game.” — Danny Murtaugh
