Baseball’s Loudest Pin Drop Falls Again

What hurt the most: Strike Three was called. He wasn’t swinging from the heels, as he is in this photo.

Oh, near everywhere in Arlington, the sun is shining bright,
The band is playing sharply, and Dallas hearts are light;
And Fort Worth men are laughing, and Irving children shout,
But there is no joy in Houston – mighty Jose has struck out.

    Have you checked where the ’51 Giants were compared to the current Astros. This may be our chance to make history.
