Warren Spahn immortalized in poem
tickets for any Major League Baseball game
BOSTON -- Text of a poem written by Boston Post sports editor Gerald V. Hern that appeared in the newspaper Sept. 14, 1948, as Warren Spahn and Johnny Sain led the Braves to the NL pennant:

First we'll use Spahn, then we'll use Sain,

Then an off day, followed by rain.

Back will come Spahn, followed by Sain,

And followed, we hope, by two days of rain.

This story was not subject to the approval of Major League Baseball or its clubs.
