Best songs or lyrics about baseball, baseball teams, or players
Im not talking about songs team use, or music for introductions, im talking about songs and lyrics that are actually about the sport, a team or a player (or an announcer)

the best ones i can thing of:

For Seattle Fans:

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis - My Oh My



For Red Sox Fans...there a bunch, aint there?

Dropkick Murphys - Tessie


Dilated Peoples - "Satellite Radio"
for this lyrical gem:
[bleep] the minors, this here's the major leagues
Where more chicks call you "Papi" than Dave Ortiz


Lean Back, 2004 ALCS version


Boston's own Akrobatic - 2007 world series rap


and for yankee fans, a little Bender X:

for cubs fan: Eddie Vedder - all the way


Obligatory:


and just for the line "And I got mad hits like I was Rod Carew!"
Beastie Boys, "Sure Shot"


any others?

Does Bronson Arroyo's version of "Dirty Water" count?



The Goo Goo Dolls do a version of "Take Me Out To The Ballgame".



Gotta love Simon and Garfunkel's nod to Joe DiMaggio in "Mrs. Robinson".



I collect Hall of Fame baseball player cards and cards of current and retired superstars.

RE: Best songs or lyrics about baseball, baseball teams, or players
One of my all time favorites is a little tune from Dave frishberg called
Van Lingle Mungo. It's on youtube. It's about all of the old timers including Mungo and the lyrics are just the names of baseball players. Check it out! I don;t know how to post a video on here but like i said its on youtube.

Looking to complete the 2013 Archives Mets fan favorite Au's as I only need Ron Darling! Also new project for 2014: Topps Gypsy Queen set base (including minis). Please note that if you have less than 15 trades, I ask that you send first.

I was gonna suggest Tesie by The Dropkick Murphy's. This one is another personal favorite.
