The Lyrics

I took my troubles down to Hoyt Wihelm.
He had a knuckler that would overwhelm.
He had a pitch that was looking mighty fine.
He showed us the way to... love pitching inning 9.

That Rollie Fingers with his 'stache had tricks.
Goose Gossage, fastball about 96.
The split-fingered fastball, Bruce Sutter's favorite sign.
And, oh, what the Eck, he... loved pitching inning 9.

So bend down behind the plate and give him a wink.
And hope the umpire calls it right, or else he's a fink.
And throw that pitch and watch it curve and jiggle and jink.
He'll hold the lead and close the game... champagne you'll drink.

Rivera helped us win the flag that night.
He started breaking every bat in sight.
When Boggs saw the cop on the horse, he jumped behind
'cause John Wetteland, he sure did... love pitching inning 9.

(saxophone break)

He'll hold the lead and close the game... champagne you'll drink.

Rivera helps us win our game each night.
He's 41 but he still breaks all bats in sight.
Just make sure you don't bring Kyle Farnsworth back again.
Or else he'll blow the lead and... you'll be in inning 10.

Love pitching inning 9.
Love pitching inning 9.
Love pitching inning 9.
Love pitching inning 9.
(repeat 'til fade)

A nice tribute to the relief pitcher. For some odd reason I have been flooded with old memories in the past month. Your song brought back the name John Wyatt. He was the reliever for the Kansas City A's back in the early 1960's. I think they would call him in about the 3rd inning.

One thing we may have learned, never ever send in Boone Logan. He's a automatic loss.
