“The First Baseball Game,” by Nat King Cole

I’ve never heard anyone try to use baseball to make biblical references before and I’m not sure I’m really a fan of it.  But Nat King Cole gave it a try in 1961, and this was the result.  Some of the phrases admittedly are pretty clever, and if baseball was a topic covered in church, I’d probably be a more frequent attendee.

  1. No baseball and Biblical references? Try this one.
    “In the Big Inning, God created the heavens and the earth.” Genesis, Chapter 1 🙂

  2. Excuse the inundation, but we can’t forget Sister Wynona Carr’s “The Ball Game” with Solomon the umpire, Satan pitching the game and so on Daniel, Job, Moses, Christ, John the closer…Oy!
