Mister Ron's Basement #433

This week we're reading 'Stories That They Are Famous For,' tales from long ago that are still remembered to this day.

Short, but highly memorable, columnist Franklin P. Adams wrote a one stanza poem in 1910 about the New York Giants getting slaughtered by the Chicago Cubs. Quoted all over the place to this day, we rarely hear the entire verse, so here it is -- 'Baseball's Sad Lexicon.'

Time: approx three and a half minutes
