Rookie - 2 Points (April 29,1961 / Lewiston, ME USA)

Some Also Ran


It all seemed so promising as the
season progressed, streaks &
slumps & 'no way's, 'who'd'a

thunk it's' & 'did you see that? 's.' Peaking at the right
time, rallying to the
top, defying all odds & preseason forecasts, in the

end only to be absorbed in the rush of the hometown
crowd invading the
field otherwise reserved for the Talent after

the Last Out, one last, network
pan of the
dugout confirming the failure,

loss,
finality, '...no
Blue Ribbon for second best...'
'till next year.

    hopes, dashed. Curtailed in mid-flight. And another season bites the dust: glory high to glory low. Meh. Next season. We (Phillies) are picking up speed.

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
