This song makes me feel sad and nostalgic at the same time. I sometimes wonder if baseball deserves all the negative sentiment that it receives today, and if the game’s past really was as great as songs like this make it seem. As with anything else, no doubt there is a tendency to place the past on a higher pedestal than it deserves, but it does make for some pretty good music.

I’m assuming this isn’t the Tim Flannery who played for the Padres?
I hadn’t thought about that, but actually, it looks like it is! –> https://timflannery.com/#mission
