          They call me Mr. Baseball. Not because of my love for the game; because of all the stitches in my head.

              No, I didn't, that's a good one too. I know Brownie McGhee from his blues sides with Sonny Terry, I actually saw them opening for Doc Watson about 40 years ago. Thanks for posting that.

                I'll always remember "Go Cubs Go" by Steve Goodman. Written and performed long before 2016's big win.

                  No one has mentioned Frank Sinatra's tribute to old stadiums, "There Used to Be a Ballpark"

                  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TgPPLHPx8PU

                  Written by Joe Raposo, most famous for much of the music on Sesame Street, it was a tribute to the Polo Grounds, but could be about any old park.
                  Let's rid baseball of the pestilence of the DH now and forever!

                    Here we go.



                    Actually, I'm surprised the REAL Bruce never did a version of this, especially when he was playing ballparks.

                    Of course, there's also ...



                    with "speedball" ....

                      "Centerfield" John Fogerty. PLUS, you get to hear a ballpark organ in the song too.

                        Fogerty should re-record "Centerfield" with real stadium clapping overdubbed rather than the cheesy '80s synth clapping. And of course the horrible "crack of the bat" synth sound. It's a classic of course but it sounds too sterile and vacuum-packed.

                        Record it live at a ballpark with a stripped down rockabilly combo; use the crowd clapping and ballpark organ as the backing.

                        The final verse of Chuck Berry's "Brown-Eyed Handsome Man," mentioned in the lyrics of "Centerfield," is about baseball too; supposedly about either Jackie Robinson or Willie Mays.

                        Two, three count with nobody on
                        He hit a high fly into the stand
                        Rounding third he was headed for home
                        It was a brown eyed handsome man
                        That won the game; it was a brown eyed handsome man

                          Anybody listen much to "The Baseball Project," featuring former members of REM?

                          Virtually all their songs are about baseball.

                            An excellent example. It received the FST: the full Sinatra treatment.

                              This is a terrific baseball song, but, you know, it ain't bad as an example of a </i>swing</i> song either. And it's still going strong! See the Youtube video of what may be either a high school or college group, ca. <b>2017</b>, who gave it a wonderful treatment:
