The "sport shirt kid", Bill Veeck has up and joined the Marines... and so it's good-bye for a while to "Leatherneck" Veeck, the guy who put the Brewers on the map...
I particularly like Grant's new lyrics for the "Marines Hymn":
From the walls of Borchert Orchard
To the shores of Old Long Neck,
The Marines have never had a pard'
Who could duplicate Bill Veeck!!
