Yeah, we do love our baseball here, for many reasons.
We (DeDoes Music) have twice produced recordings of the classic baseball song, “Take Me Out To The Ballgame.”
The first time was back in 2002. We decided to add a Dixieland-jazz version to the CD “Hittin’ Your Mark,” produced for Move&Learn. Listen to StrongArm Satch & The All-Stars of Swing bring this one home !
Then…Mattie got introspective on his debut CD “I’m A Player” in 2009. An early version of this disc was produced to benefit his high school baseball team; this song was a MUST for that project. When the full CD was completed later that spring, “Ballgame” stayed on.
Enjoy these new versions of a song that we’ve not only enjoyed since Mattie was a boy, but one that we’ve always enjoyed playing and, in recent years, producing our own “takes.” What’s more – the original sheet music for this song hangs in the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown…and another copy hangs on a wall in our house !
