Agreed. Great quiz - except I never heard of a poem titled "Pray for Rain".

I thought it was the "Amazin' Mets"? I could be wrong. Also, I've always liked the 1984 Tigers - Bless You Boys

chriskotx: the poem is "Spahn and Sain" by Gerald Hern. Though it never mentions "pray for rain," the phrase originated from his poem.
