BY MAN’S HAND (1) *

There may have been some who met the same fate
after their playing days were over,
but there were nine of us who met that fate
while we were still active players,
enough of us to form a team,
a team no one in or out of the game
wants to make the roster of: murder victims,
in our cases either shot or stabbed
The tragic roster:
George Craig
Steel-Arm Dickey
Rube Chambers
Ed Morris
Porter Moss
Miguel Fuentes
Lyman Bostock
Dernell Stenson
and Greg Halman
