Maybe this is the one you're looking for....

He's Just A Little Boy

He stands at the plate,
with his heart pounding.
The bases are loaded,
The die has been cast.

Mom and Dad cannot help him,
He stands all alone.
A hit at this moment,
Would send the team home.

The ball meets the plate,
He swings and he misses.
There's a groan from the crowd,
With some boos and some hisses.

A thoughtless voice cries,
Strike out the Bum!
Tears fill his eyes,
The game's no longer fun.

So open your heart,
And give him a break.
For it's moments like these,
A man you can make.

Please keep in mind,
When you hear someone forget.
He's just a little boy,
And not a man yet.
