            I love all the titles posted. Here are some others I like:

            "Rain Delay" by Marah (featuring the voice of the Phillies, Harry the K)

            "Miami 2017" by Billy Joel (with the great line about sending an aircraft carrier to pick up the Yankees)

            'I Love Mickey Mantle" by Theresa Brewer, featuring the Mick himself

              Agreed. But there is some argument over the authenticity of Fogerty's lyric. I can remember when this song came out in the mid-eighties, Tim McCarver would point out that no player in real life would refer to his manager as 'coach' but rather as 'Skip.' Is that true?

                McCarver was in pro baseball too long to remember that high school and college have coaches, not managers, which are often called skippers. I am sure that Fogerty was thinking back when he was a kid, and even though that Little League and Pony League do call them "Managers," kids of that age will most often call them "coach" and not "skipper" or "skip." Besides, "Coach" makes better lyrical sense, and skip just does not have that ring to the line.

                It's better than movies and TV shows showing the ninth inning of HS baseball games, and it is not extra innings.

                  Every team I played on called the Manager "Coach". From Little league up to American Legion. McCarver seems to talk a bit too much when he has no Idea of what he's saying.

                      In pro ball, you would never call the manager coach, but skip or skipper. It is a matter of delineation. Often times, umpires (or officials in any sport, when not actually addressing them by their first name) adress them as coaches, but managers would often take exception to that, because he is a "skipper."

                              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.
                              I love the DKM Tessie, really gets me revved up. Dirty Water works too, just no more Sweet Caroline. ever. PLEASE!

                                I still call him coach some thirty years later.
