In Honor of the World Series and Great Hitters Past and Present

Mr. Williams, they took

your best years away

Yet still you uber alles

There have been threats

to your throne

Men in the kingdom

Rose Brett Carew

among the few

Yet none have known

Yet none can know

the secrets

you know

I have seen

black and white

of old film

I have lived

the color of pretenders

which cannot compare

to your filmed

black and white


That swing

Black and white
