    I'm surprised anyone got this far without mentioning Jim "Mudcat" Grant. Mudcat wasn't a bad singer, and I think he did an album in the 60's- "Mudcat Grant and the Kittens."

      "It is not generally known that Jack Shearon is an accomplished musican, but such is the case. Montreal's right fielder wrote the music for two of Press Eldridges's, "Do Not Slap Little Brother-Kick Him in the Slats," and "Sifting the Cinders With Cynthia." He is now engaged on some pathetic ballads, which are to be called "Strolling in the Mud With Blanche," "Playing Ping-Pong With Polly" and "Who Soaked Sally With a Pancake." These songs are to be published as musical supplements of the "War Cry." (from the Montreal Sun article titled "A Musical Genius Flouted")

      Shearon began his career as a pitcher and later converted to the outfield. I'd love to get the sheet music for some of these classics. :-)
      That's brilliant, it could have come from The Onion. Hilarious.
      They call me Mr. Baseball. Not because of my love for the game; because of all the stitches in my head.

          On Rick Dempsey's official website, he is described as a musician. Wonder if he does his Babe Ruth routine at shows?

            Dang, this is good. Bronson Arroyo could learn from the relaxed effort Flannery puts into this. The man can sing. Solid guitar player, too.

            As for the two hefty boys in the back- great musicians. Not athletes.
