A song about baseball...not quite as-it-was but more as-we-wish-it-used-to-be. Where it's boys playing a boys game for the sheer joy of it, in a world without greedy owners or spitballs or oppressive contracts. (Never mind fixed games and steroids.) It's pleasant enough, but the fact is - I've mainly heard this song over the last thirty years in conjunction with Major League Baseball or some related sales pitch (Opening Day savings on Ford Pickups!) For Baseball fans all over the world series!!
