Show & Tell – Baseball Music
Show and TellThere are a few things that make a baseball game a baseball game. The players. The fans. The hot dogs, peanuts, and beer. And of course... music. Think about it. Every single game begins with a song—the Star Spangled Banner. At ballparks large and small, the seventh inning stretch is marked with a sing-along of baseball’s unofficial anthem Take Me Out to the Ballgame. And in major league cities across America, unique music traditions of all kinds have sprung up over the years. In Pittsburgh, Pirates fans belt out "We Are Family"… while In Los Angeles, the Dodgers favor “Don’t Stop Believing” despite the fact that Journey’s lead singer Steve Perry is a die hard fan of the cross-state rival San Francisco Giants. Here in Boston the middle of the eighth-inning has become an occasion for 37-thousand strong to belt out a rousing rendition of Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline.” Well with me now to walk us through this indelible link between baseball and music, and to offer his own analysis of our home-team’s music traditions, is our favorite music geek, author Steve Almond.
