Watched Griffey as a teen
Ms drafted first, sending him
to Bellingham, their A team.
With him surely, they should win.

He had a special magic bat,
destined as a real, cool cat.
Playing minors, loved to score
Swing so easy, knew there’s more.

Friend and I saunter across
Watch him play a major’s game.
Hopeful he will sign his name.
He’s a legend worth the cost.

Last week, the “Say Hey Kid” passed.
He said Mays, like an uncle,
shared advice and his struggles.
Baseball legends ever last.
