1895-1943

Outfield
No. 10

Lorenz Hart

Plays deep outfield. In fact, way out west on West End Avenue. Unreliable, big booze problem, big self-esteem problem. Manifests itself in his extraordinary gifts as a bench jockey. The best lyricist who ever lived; he just didn't live long enough. Richard Rodgers's partner for all of Rodgers's finest work.
