Rockin' the diamond

Do you like baseball and good rock music? Or at least, baseball and music, because I don't know how good it is. Check this album out:

The Baseball Project

If you are a fan of baseball and Rock and Roll Music than 'the Baseball Project' is a must for you! Four musicians share the passion of our beautiful sport and made an album 'Volume 1. Frozen Ropes And Dying Quails'. A mix of country,pop, folk and rock. Thirteen songs of our heroes telling their stories. Scott McCaughey (Minus 5), Steve Wynn (The Dream Syndicate), Peter Buck (yes, the one from R.E.M) and Linda Pitmon on drums first appeared at David Letterman.

Among the songs is the Spanish ballad of former L.A. Dodgers pitcher Fernando Valenzuela. 'Broken Man' tells the story of Mark McGwire. "Past Time' is a musical tour where all the heroes appear. A comic song called 'Ted Fucking Williams' and 'Sometimes I dream of Willie Mays'. The last song of the album is 'The Closer' and tells the lonely life and hunger for pressure of those who played only a few minutes in the game.

We cannot wait for Volume 2!!!

Hey, a song by Fernando! Its worth the price just to see what he can do.
