For those of you who love both music and baseball, I suggest, no, I implore you, to check out the new album by The Baseball Project called Volume 1: Frozen Ropes and Dying Quails. Fronted by Scott McCaughey (R.E.M., The Minus 5) and Steve Wynn (Gutterball, Dream Syndicate) with Peter Buck (R.E.M., The Minus 5) and Linda Pitmon (Golden Smog, Miracle 3) rounding out the band, the album takes both rock and baseball and combines them into one incredible package. The album features such tracks as "Gratitude (For Curt Flood)", "Ted F****** Williams" and "Sachel Paige Said". My favorite song on the album is "Harvey Haddix" as it earnestly pleads for Haddix to be included with pitchers who have thrown perfect 9 inning games. For those who don't know, Haddix had a perfect game going into the 13th inning on May 26, 1959 against the Milwaukee Braves who lost the game on a home run it by Joe Adcock. It's often referred to as the "Greatest Game Ever Pitched". But my words can't do this song, or album, justice. Go pick it up and give it a listen. The music is great, the lyrics are incredible and a baseball geek's dream.
