“Catfish,” by Bob Dylan

Here’s a song by the great Bob Dylan about the one and only Catfish Hunter.  It’s short and laid back, and the mood of the song fits in well with Hunter’s modest background.  The lyrics, however, speak to the acclaim that the right-handed pitcher earned over the course of his career.

    Still trying to wrap my head around a bluesy tune about a baseball pitcher. Jail time, poverty, bad luck, my baby left me — all great candidates for the blues. But a wail over balls and strikes? I guess that’s do-able, Bob Dylan did it. Maybe I just need to broaden my horizons a bit, huh? 🙂

    Thanks – Catfish is in good company when you think of the great historical and contemporary figures who feature in Bob’s songs! Regards Thom.
