“Take Me Out to the Ball Game”

Since this is a public domain song, I sang it how I know it on December 10th, 2011

“Take Me Out to the Ball Game”

a 1908 Tin Pan Alley song by Jack Norworth and Albert Von Tilzer which has become the unofficial anthem of baseball,
although neither of its authors had attended a game prior to writing the song.
The song (chorus only) is traditionally sung during the seventh-inning stretch of a baseball game.
Fans are generally encouraged to sing along, and at some ballparks,
the words “home team” are replaced with the team name,
as is the case with the Houston Astros, San Francisco Giants,
Pittsburgh Pirates, Boston Red Sox, Chicago Cubs, Chicago White Sox,
Milwaukee Brewers, Philadelphia Phillies, Toronto Blue Jays, Miami Marlins,
Colorado Rockies, Detroit Tigers and several other Major League Baseball teams.-Wikipedia

When I was a boy I had desires to be a baseball pitcher.
It didn’t happen so I wrote a poem about it.
You can find it in my poetry collection:

Well since then I’ve learned about a Jay Beacham, a pro baseball pitcher.
A picture of him at work in his college days is here:

A Jay Beacham actually did become a baseball pitcher
But as my poems says:
“Though balls fly from mitt to sky
They do not at all on me rely.”
