Last night I spent about an hour watching Ken Burns’ new documentary “The Tenth Inning.” The portion of Burns’ 4-hr followup to 1994′ “Baseball” that I watched reminded me of the magic of the game of baseball, and why I still love it so much.
And to accompany the game are the songs that fuel it, the songs that celebrate it, and the songs we drunkenly sing during the 7th inning stretch after drinking a few too many beers – Eddie Vedder, I’m looking at you.
Eddie Vedder – All The Way
Bruce Springsteen – Glory Days
Dropkick Murphys – Tessie
State Radio – Right Me Up
Eddie Vedder – Take Me Out To The Ballgame
