Yay Baseball! Go Yanks. The only team in NY that are any good. Maybe the Mets.

EFD, you need to dig out "Loco Baseball" by Eddie Lawrence. Some of us find it hilarious.

Simple important information!
  9:12pm John from Florham Park:

Anybody watch baseball by Ken burns
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:14pm Alex of Chicago:

I didn't know the Astros and Mets were added the same year. That makes 1986 even more special.

@alex what a great series
  Swag For Life Member 9:18pm Julie M:

My boyfriend has a can of "Mets" grape soda from 1986 and he swore we wouldn't drink it until they won the Series again. By now it will probably poison us!

Or, it's all evaporated...

The Red Sox song is so much better

Yeah, the video must rule.

There must be a video, it came out in 1986

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:40pm Alex of Chicago:

What about Get Metsmerized!? "Initially, Passport Records printed one thousand copies on a twelve-inch 'collector's edition' record. Approximately 120 were sold. The first obstacle was the music: it was awful."
  9:45pm Alex of Miami:

Babe Ruth!!!!

there's an album x Willy t Taylor w some good songs abt baseball (:
  9:46pm asheville jon:

Miss Tug, what a good guy
  Swag For Life Member 9:47pm Julie M:

Since we'll still be on baseball for a bit, I was reading an article on the Associated Press site today that was basically saying there are no active players left from the 20th century...

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:48pm AndyIowa:

On the folkier side, Dan Bern released a great collection of baseball tunes called "Doubleheader":

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:49pm efd:

@Julie M, wow! I hadn't really stopped to think about it but I guess that makes sense since it's 2019 already!
  9:50pm Bill W:

It's Tug! Run for your lives!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:51pm efd:

there's no way this was recorded in a single take, right?
  9:52pm John Ford:

This is why the Vet had astroturf. Tug smoked all the grass in Philly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:52pm Quasi Mojo:

No way, EFD. I suspect this was many many takes spliced together with tape and a razor blade.
  9:53pm Bill W:

Two takes if Tug needed a fresh cocktail... Another couple of listens and this will displace Jane Jarvis playing that Irish jig on the Shea organ as my idea of Tug McGraw music. Damn you, Davies!

  Swag For Life Member 10:23pm Julie M:

Well, LOVE the baseball opening, but now that it's over, may I be the first (?) to say that the non-baseball music so far has been just great.
