There's a Poetry in Place Names

Big Pat Daugherty knows. And he finds the poetry in numbers the way William Carlos Williams could find the poetry in an EKG.

He played rookie ball in the Arizona League that year. Did well, got a bump up in 1998 to A ball for the South Bend Silver Hawks, then took a bump down to rookie league (Lethbridge Black Diamonds) after 16 games. At Lethbridge, Cust played 73 games, hit .345 with 11 home runs.

That's America singing, baby.
