MLB to celebrate 'Ball Game' with special on ESPN
Loyal readers know about my fascination with the song "Take Me Out to the Ball Game," whose 100th anniversary I celebrated with a long feature over the winter that I can't figure out how to link to from here.
Thus I will be sure to TiVo Friday night's special on the song - it's on ESPN via MLB Productions - that features various players taking a stab at singing it. Deep, mysterious sources tell me the rendition by the Phils' Ryan Howard and Jimmy Rollins is a highlight.
Another will be Adam Wilbur of Medford, a band director in the Longwood school district, leading the crowd at Yankee Stadium in "Ball Game" at Tuesday's All-Star game.
Wilbur won a nationwide contest for the honor sponsored by Baby Ruth candy.
