My Baseball History

Graig Nettles as a Yankee wore the number nine
the New York Yankees in the seventies very fine
I’m Red Sox fan but a baseball fan first 
as you can tell baseball is my first thirst
ever since the seventies I was a baseball fan
Lou Brock and Yaz and Yaz the main man
baseball my sport of choice it’s my only game
and the Boston Red Sox have plenty of fame
I’ve been to Boston a few times what a city

    If you're a Red Sox fan, then why didn't you mention the late Ted Williams who wore number 9 while a player? Belated congratulations to you. This entry deserved recognition.

    Nine was the number I was given in teener's league and since I played infield. Yankees were always on back than on WPIX 11.
