Ruth and Gehrig, Mantle and Maris, DiMaggio and Berra.
Names in baseball history that live forever.
They are the great players of yore,
who created the Yankee lore.
Now the Team of the Decade
new legends have they made,
Who will certainly be
a part of Yankee history.
Unsung heroes, many are they,
who helped show the way.
When things started to look bad.
Along came the two home runs from Chad.
And little Ricky Ledee,
showed everyone that he is ready.
Jason Grimsley did not have to be told,
that the Braves he must hold.
Then we came to the final game,
the one in which they would gain their fame.
With victory near at last,
they knew they would hold fast.
For the Braves were soon to face,
the Yankees mighty bullpen ace.
Three bats in a row did Mariano shatter.
How hapless looked that batter.
And every one knew it soon would be,
the final vic-TORRE of the Century.
