Cy Young looks in for the sign
as the students pass by
on their way to class.
In another part of Beantown,
on another campus a short train ride away,
the fans all cheer the football team
in the Braves' first right field stands.
You can stop and park by the spot
where Henry passed the Babe
and coeds look down on the home
where Mazeroski won the game.
And sick people heal on the field
where the Big Train once rumbled through.
A mall now sits on the Killer's grounds.
A street runs through Crosley Field.
The Tribe's first home still stands today,
Well, just the ticket booth.
Like Sportsman's Park, A city kid's refuge
from the terror of the streets.
With just a plaque to say
that once upon a time, a ballpark stood here.
