"Oh, put me in coach..."

The best video of what is, in my humble opinion, the best baseball song:

I'm sorry, I was a big Creedence fan, and was glad Fogerty milked the sound for an 80s hit album, but I've always hated this song. Just hate it. Not sure why, but I do.

The best baseball song ever was "Say Hey (The Willie Mays Song)" by the Treniers. And Willie makes an audio cameo, too.

That is a good one, JM. So is Count Basie and Buddy Johnson's "Did You See Jackie Robinson Hit That Ball?"

Others include, "Joe, Joe, DiMaggio/ We want you on our side...", Tin Pan Alley's very own, "Take Me Out to the Ballgame," the maudlin but irresistible Sinatra, "There used to be a ballpark right here...", Dion's "I used to be a Brooklyn Dodger," and of course "Meet the Mets," just because there are so many ways to rewrite it:

"Meet the Mets
Cleat the Mets
Come right out and beat the Mets...
For the Mets are really sucking their balls
Taking their falls..."

Oh, there are so many variations when you're 9!
