There are many baseball songs, but only one is the best, and it is this one.

I know this is heresy but I really like Steve Goodman, so ignoring everything else, have to appreciate the passion.

I won't dispute Centerfield as #1, but I like this one a lot, too. Plus the other cheesy 50s and 60s songs about similar players (Jackie Robinson, Joe Dimaggio, Willie Mays):

I loved this song when I was a kid. Remember the days when you'd have to wait all day by the radio to hear something?
