Top baseball songs [Videos]

It’s hard to believe we’re almost halfway through the baseball season.  The all star game is just over two weeks away.  With that in mind, lets check out some top tunes from the national past time.

During my research I found well over one hundred songs that are about or had a reference in the lyrics about baseball.

The eleven songs I chose run the gamut from the early 20th century up to 1985.  Three of the songs are connected to our local MLB franchises.

The songs are in no particular order.

If you have a favorite that’s not posted, let me know.

So get yourself a hot dog and some Cracker Jack.  Listen and have fun.

“Centerfield” by John Fogerty

“Did You See Jackie Robinson Hit That Ball?”  by Count Basie

I had to include this one since Mr. Basie was from Red Bank.

Here are two that refer to the “Yankee Clipper”.

“Mrs. Robinson” by Simon and Garfunkel

“Joltin’ Joe DiMaggio” by Les Brown and His Band of Renown

“Glory Days” by Bruce Springsteen  “I had a friend, was a big baseball player, back in high school”.  Enough said

“Talkin;’ Baseball (Willie, Mickey and The Duke)” by Terry Cashman

“Say Hey (The Willie Mays Song)”  by The Treniers

Here’s the granddaddy.  It’s been around for over a hundred years.

  “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” by Jack Norworth

We can’t forget about our local clubs.

First the Phillies.  There are several songs about the “Fightin’ Phils”.  Here’s the one I picked.

“Phillies Phight Song”  Original writer and performer was not listed

“Here Come the Yankees” by Bob Bundin and Lou Stallman

I have to admit I’m partial to the Yankees.  With that said, I believe the most enduring team baseball song belongs to the team from Queens.

“Meet the Mets” by Ruth Roberts and Bill Katz
