Shut Up and Pitch Better

By Doug White

“It was a good pitch — at his shoestrings,” Snell said. “No excuses, but this ballpark’s a joke. That wouldn’t have gone out at PNC [Park].” (on Reds’ 4-0 victory over Pirates on 5/28/07, in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.)


There once was a pitcher named Snell

Who didn’t throw particularly well.

When he hung a curve too high,

David Ross let it fly,

Then the hurler gave the poor ballpark hell.
