What a great baseball player was Dale Murphy.
Here was a man endowed with natural ability.
He made so many fellow players green with envy.
Swinging a bat, he could hit the ball a mile.
Dale exhibited fielding prowess all the while.
What an impressive career he has to show.
Dale was Most Valuable Player two years in a row.
However, he has missed election to the Hall of Fame.
To leave mighty Mr. Murphy out seems a shame.
