You can definitely tell it's Spring. The air smells sweeter, the grass is getting greener, the birds are coming out to sing...and the pinstripes are coming out to play.
Starting this weekend, it's baseball season, boys and girls!
Turn on the overhead lights, fire up the hot dogs and crack open a cold beer. Let's welcome baseball season 2008 with some classic clips.
First off, the namesake of this post, Terry Cashman's "Talkin' Baseball" (the most famous of many versions. I couldn't find the Phillies version, unfortunately).
Next, another baseball theme song, John Fogerty's "Centerfield."
One of the all-time amazing moments of the game, "The Shot Heard 'Round The World," which won the 1952 National League Championship for the New York Giants. "The Giants win the pennant! The Giants win the Pennant!"
Another famous, or infamous moment, in baseball history--Bill Buckner's error that enabled the Mets to win the 1986 World Series.
And of course, no celebration of America's Favorite Pastime would be complete without Abbot & Costello's "Who's On First."
Come back on Sunday for Talkin' Baseball Part 2, when I'll be bring you some animated baseball fun. Thanks!
P.S. Recommend an mp3 player for me! See my last post.
