Put Me in Coach, I'm Ready to Play
As I write this post, it is an amazing 63 degrees here in New York. Spring definitely feels like it's in the air. There's going to be rain later today, but baseball is clearly on the way.
I got to thinking about one of my favorite all-time videos, John Fogerty's 1985 tribute to old time baseball, "Centerfield." It's a great tune, and the entire video is nothing but classic baseball clips, of the old Brooklyn Dodgers, Red Sox, Yankees, Cubs, etc., and the great players of yesteryear. So here is the video, courtesy of YouTube.
I've always found most music videos pretty useless, but this is one of the best.
Just three weeks to go until we play baseball for real. The video is just under four minutes. Enjoy.
