Enjoying Some Baseball Poetry in Winter

It is roughly 36 days until the first team reports for spring training. With that in mind I thought I would bust out one of my favorite baseball poems. Being a Braves fan I never got to see either pitch, but have heard and read many stories.

This was first published in the Boston Globe in 1948. That year Warren Spahn and Johnny Sain went a combined 39-27 for the first place Braves. Of course, they were even better in 1947 each winning 21 games.

First we’ll use Spahn
then we’ll use Sain
Then an off day
followed by rain
Back will come Spahn
followed by Sain
And followed
we hope
by two days of rain.

Here is hoping for baseball to get here as quick as it can. What baseball poetry do you enjoy? Post some of your favorites in the comments below.
