Great book. well written. Great man. Great hero

We've been through wars together,
We took our foes as they came,
And always you were the leader,
and ever you played the game,
Idol of cheering millions,
records are yours by sheaves,
Iron of frame they hailed you,
Decked you with laurel leaves.
But higher than this we hold you,
We who have known you best,
Knowing how you came through every Yankee test,
Let this be a silent token,
of lasting friendships' gleam
and all we've left unspoken,
your pal,
the Yankee team.
