I think continually of those who were truly great lefthanders:
Koufax, Grove, Carlton, Spahn ...
There were righties who were deft handers,
too: Drysdale, Gibson, Marichal, and Newcombe, Don.

Don't know her:
does she throw left or right?
Got a Yellow Hammer?
Is her sinker tight?
Comes from Texas,
eh? I ain't lyin':
don't think it's sexist,
to prefer Nolan Ryan.

Among portsiders I maintain
Mr Koufax hurls a hurricane
at all-star hitters who face
the fast ball of fleeting fame,
the curve ball of disgrace.
-- K. C. (Royal) Stengel
