I'm looking to make a baseball themed CD, I've got some of the more obvious ones out of the way, but I'm looking for suggestions. Here's what I have so far:

1. Theme from "Baseball Tonight"
2. Steve Goodman - Go Cubs Go
3. James Earl Jones' "The People Will Come" speech from Field of Dreams
4. The Simpsons - Talkin' Baseball
5. Robert De Niro's baseball speech from The Untouchables
6. Alabama - Cheap Seats
7. George Carlin - Baseball vs Football
8. Terry Cashman - Talkin' Baseball (Chicago Cubs)
9. Lou Gehrig's farewell speech (very bad quality, and very short, I'd like to get a better version of this)
10. John Fogerty - Centerfield
11. Bud Light presents Mr. Major League infield raker
12. Harry Caray Singing "Take Me Out to the Ballgame"
13. Bill Cosby on baseball
14. Abbot and Costello - Who's on First?
15. Adam Sandler - Right Field - (Also known as me playing baseball.)
16. Casey at the Bat recited by James Earl Jones
17. Steve Goodman - A Dying Cubs Fan's Last Request
(about 50 minutes total)

I'd like either generic baseball songs, or Cubs-themed songs, but all suggestions are worthwhile. I can't find a copy of Willie, Mickey and the Duke (Talkin Baseball), but I may be searching under the wrong file name. I'd also like to get Rob Dibble's "World Champions of the World" soundbite as well. Thanks.


//edit: While I'm here, I'm looking for the score that plays during the movie Major League when we're getting introduced to the team in Spring Training. Anyone know where I can find this out at?

If you're going for movie clips(as you are in some cases) I would also consider the conversation on the pitcher's mound in Bull Durham("Candlesticks always make a nice gift")

I'd throw a cover of "Wild Thing" on there, in honor of Ricky Vaughn. (or Mitch Williams, if you prefer)

That version if I'm not mistaken was by the band X.

Although, if you can find the clip somewhere in the file-sharing realms of Ozzy singing at Wrigley Field, you're well on your way.

You can't have a baseball CD without "The First Baseball Game" from the Bob and Tom Show. Comedian Dan St. Paul does a dead on Harry Carey broadcasting the game between The Jeruselum Giants and Bethlehem Braves. Classic.

Here is a flash cartoon of part of it:

If I lived back in the wild west days, instead of carrying a six-gun in my holster, I'd carry a soldering iron. That way, if some smart-aleck cowboy said something like "Hey, look. He's carrying a soldering iron!" and started laughing, and everybody else started laughing, I could just say, "That's right, it's a soldering iron. The soldering iron of justice." Then everybody would get real quiet and ashamed, because they had made fun of the soldering iron of justice, and I could probably hit them up for a free drink.

One of the best baseball songs I ever heard was when listening to WKNR in Cleveland, and they played a clip of this Indians-themed rap song called (I think) "Swing Batta Batta." It was catchy as hell, and the radio announcer actually shut up for a moment and let the song play in its entirety.

Also, I dunno if you could find these anywhere, but the Toronto Blue Jays released a player-themed novelty album in the early 1990's with songs about Joe Carter, Tom Henke, and their other various stars of that era.

Mentioning Tom Henke reminds me of the Orioles 1989 theme "Why Not?" as we damn near won the division, as well as "Orioles Magic" which is now ancient and still played every time the O's take the field at home.

Excellent idea, Whitebacon. I may have to steal it.

A couple ideas. The theme music (if you can find it, and I would LOVE to know what the name of it is) for This Week In Baseball always got me pumped up. Also, even though it's broader in topic than just baseball, Springsteen's "Glory Days" reminds me of playing ball with my buds.

John Caponera doing Harry Caray is always a hoot.

If you can get your hands on either Mike Ditka or Steve McMichael's version of Take me out.. those are high-larious.

And even though you're looking at the other side of town from where my allegiances lie, surely no one can resist Steam's "Na-Na-Hey-Hey Goodbye", a staple at White Sox games since the days of the South Side Hitmen.

Might be cheating, but Rhino *did* release a CD that did a lot of the compiling FOR you:

Baseball's Greatest Hits (rhino.com)

Apparently the second volume, "Let's Play II" is out of print and going for exorbitant sums of money on Amazon (amazon.com), which is too bad

-Maybe...but I can't stand Bob and Tom? Are they laughing maniacally in the background the whole time?

-I also added the Kenny Rogers song, "The Greatest"

-Thank you Z.

Brewers Fever....is that sickness what's causing the poor play of the Brew Crew. Catch it? I think my Rangers caught it a few years back and haven't been able to shake it yet. Nasty little bug.


On topic....
Can't think of the comic pairs names, but they did a version of Who's On First a few years back using current (at the time) Yankees players. It aired on Comedy Central a few times...pretty good stuff.

As long as Sheets keeps pitching like he is, the rest of the Brewers can come down with whatever illness they want.

On a personal note, grab three 2-minute songs by my man Buck 65 called "The Blues Parts I, II and III."

It's a retelling of a game we played for provincial playoffs back in our baseball days, with a few creative liberties thrown in.

The line "And what may later prove to be the ultimate game-winning catch" from Part II is a reference to a catch I made in that game...a ball I got such a good jump on from CF I caught it BEHIND the rightfielder.

"Men In Blue" by Rick Sutcliffe, Jody Davis, Leon Durham and Gary Woods from 1984.

"It's a Beautiful Day For a Ball Game" Unknown artists, used to be the Cubs' radio theme song.

"There Used To Be A Ball Park" by Frank Sinatra

This thread has stuck the horrible "Okay! Blue Jays! Let's...Play...Ball!" song in my head. Did I really do that dance every seventh inning stretch?

The Blue Jays album can be found in used LP/Cassette/CD stores across Southern Ontario.

Bite your tongue! What would you rather do during the 7th inning, listen to that Yankee Stadium blowhard sing God Bless America for 27 minutes? Give me hot chicks leading cheers anyday.
