    Absolutely Tessie.

    The Dropkick Murphys are terrible, but still, Tessie.

    Hon. Mention to Simon and Garfunkel!!!!
    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:

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

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

    Virtually all their songs are about baseball.

    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

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

    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" ....

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

    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.
