I just heard this on my iPod and on a whim, decided to post the lyrics. It doesn’t really have anything to do with baseball, just a reference to Augie catching Lou Gehrig rounding 3rd. Augie Nieto has ALS, that is what the line means. It is a beautiful song by Five-for-Fighting.
We went to a concert of his and John Ondrasik talked about meeting Augie and what an uplifting experience it was. I with I could remember more. Here is a link to a website with more information about Augie. Augie’s Quest, he’s looking for a cure.
