Thread: Seventh Inning Stretch Songs

  1. #1

    Seventh Inning Stretch Songs

    This is my first post and I did my best in trying to find this subject throughout the forum, but I had no luck.

    I would love to find all the seventh inning stretch songs that are played in the Major League Parks after "God Bless America" and "Take Me Out to the Ballgame."

    I'm familiar with only one or two and it's kind of neat to see how a ballpark is identified by this time honored tradition.

    New York Mets - Lazy Mary - Lou Monte
    Boston Red Sox - Sweet Caroline - Neil Diamond
    Baltimore Orioles - Thank God I'm a Country Boy - John Denver
    Houston Astros - Deep in the Heart of Texas - ?

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    I've never noticed. I find music at the ballpark to be extremely annoying.

    at pac bell in san francisco, "take me out" is played mon-sat, with one of a great variety of songs following.
    on sundays, "god bless america" is played before "take me out".
    praise the lord that this sunday *tradition* occurs but once a week.

    after a giants win, tony bennett's "i left my heart in san francisco" is played.

    Thank you everyone that posted. I think this is going to be a little harder than I thought. I also didn't realize that a ballpark would play different songs after "Take Me Out..."

    I appreciate everyone's reply. And thank you for welcoming me to the message boards.

    It belongs in church, not the ballpark. I also think it sends a bad message to people.

    Time and place, guys. This isn't it. If you really need to discuss who's right and who's wrong in regards to religion or whatever it is you're butting heads over, take it to pm.

    Thank YOU. I have been pleasantly surprised with ALL the mods here. They really try to give a guy a lot of rope, but sometimes the guy insists on hanging himself. Aye-aye and keep up the excellent work, Cap'n

    Because it's a legitimate topic where people actually want to contribute. I can understand and respect your disapproval of the song in question. That's fine, and nobody has the right to tell you you're wrong in that. But this is simply not the place to discuss the merits of songs from a philosophical standpoint.
    RMB, while I appreciate the kind words, it does take two to tangle. If someone posts something from a non-baseball viewpont you disagree with, ahem, please turn the other cheek.

    Does post 14 apply or not?

    All WCOAB did was agree with wamby. He didn't go into why or anything like that. As long as nothing escalates from that, there's nothing wrong with it.
