        Baton Rouge, LA – During a recent interview with Spin magazine’s Nathan McCoy, Creedence Clearwater Revival founder/solo recording star John Fogerty revealed that nearly 18 years after the hit song’s release, he still holds out hope that someday a major league team will honor his longtime request to be centerfield.

        Originally sung on his 1985 album, Centerfield, Fogerty once again attempted to convince Major League organizations that he would be an ideal choice to be the grassy part of the outfield that is commonly found between right and left field in most baseball stadiums.

        "A-roundin' third and headed for home, it's a brown-eyed handsome man," said Fogerty, 58. "Anyone can understand the way I feel. Put me in Coach, I'm ready to play today…Look at me, I can be, centerfield."

        When asked by McCoy whether he originally meant "play" centerfield rather than "be" centerfield – a request that would be just as outlandish, considering Fogerty’s complete lack of baseball experience or skill – Fogerty adamantly shook his head.

        "So say Hey Willie, tell the Cobb, and Joe DiMaggio, don't say it ain't so, you know the time is now," Fogerty said. "Look at me, I can be centerfield."

        Fearing that his interview was spiraling out of control, McCoy then suggested that perhaps Fogerty had originally mistyped the lyrics, or only felt the need to use the word "be" because it rhymed with "look at me," but really intended to say "play" centerfield.

        This prompted the former CCR front man to fly into a violent rage.

        "I can be centerfield! I can be centerfield!" screamed Fogerty as he hopped up and down on his front porch. "Grass, AstroTurf®, Nexturf®, it doesn’t matter – I can be centerfield!!"

        Fogerty then promptly soiled himself, lost consciousness, and collapsed.

        "Yeah, that was pretty bizarre," McCoy said later, after calling his editors and saying that the story was dead because Fogerty had become a "total wackjob."

        "After all these years, this dude still thinks he can literally be an expansive area made entirely of grass, or turf, or whatever. And I still don’t know why he felt the need to say ‘The Cobb’ instead of just ‘Cobb.’"

        McCoy added: "And when he started jumping up and down I realized he wasn’t wearing any pants. That was highly unsettling."

        The interview will appear in the September 7 issue of Spin, as well as the September 12 issue of Utterly Asinine American Song Lyrics.

              Good old Harry Caray got that part wrong, the correct lyrics are "...take me out with the crowd...."

                LMAO at that "Centerfield" post, and wow, a Van Lingo Mungo reference. That's good stuff. I'll go with the old big band tune "Jackie Robinson".

                  I really liked Phil Rizzuto's play by play bit in the great Meatloaf song,"Paradise by the Dashboard Light" interesting use of baseball as a metaphor for scoring with your girlfriend in the car.

                            Being a Red Sox fan, I'm partial to the Dropkick Murphys' rendition of "Tessie". Not an all-time favorite--yet--but it's surely a current favorite.

                            Even though it's not a baseball song, I have to add "Dirty Water" by the Standells. It's played after every Boston victory at Fenway.

                              Pesky, I hated Tessie when it came out, but its one of those songs taht I find myself humming all the time. Actually, I have both versions of it on the CD of "Sox music" I burned, along with Dirty Water and Sweet Caroline, et al.
