When I grow up I want to be....

My dream when I grew up
was to play 3rd base
for the 
Chicago Cubs

Ron Santo was my hero
my glove, like his glove,
like the one above
was a Wilson A 2000

He was a real good player
should be in the hall of fame
He died recently, diabetes did him in

I bought this glove
when I was 15 years old
It took me a long time to get the money to pay for it.

I wasn't good enough
love for the game
trying hard to become good
weren't enough

reality set in
I knew by 18 it was over

I bought that glove
43 years ago

your first dream
like your first love
never go away

do they?
