Ode to a One-Man HOF Induction Year

By Bill McCurdy

 

He made it to the Hall of Fame

By being very good.

He wasn’t full blown greatness

But he did the best he could.

 

While some greats put in twenty years,

He played a cool fifteen

Of hurly burly baseball time

That wrapped up lean and clean.

 

He didn’t reach three thousand hits,

Nor B.A. a three hundred dime,

But he swung at few bad pitches

And his patience was sublime

 

Add he was good ~ so very good

And all who knew his smile

Could feel the warmth of caring

That exuded from his style.

 

So why don’t we induct him now,

Looking forward to this summer,

‘Cause missing out ~ for everyone

Would truly be a bummer.
