To Vin Scully

As long as I have watched
Baseball you were in the box
Telling me what the score was
And who the crowd were 
Chanting for.
You danced across unassisted
Double plays and 100 
Mile per hour fast balls:
You never missed a strike
You never missed a call. 

Your final game of your 
Career was against the mighty
Giants, I never cared for the 
Dodgers, or any kind of 
Los Angeles alliance
But when you called out
Dodger Baseball for the
Final beautiful time
I had to stop a moment
To wipe a tear away
From my eye. 

(RIP Vin. We miss you already.)
