Trip to the Yard 2006

Each year I have had my season tickets to the Orioles, I have made a CD for the trip to and from the Yard. Of course, this year, wthout a radio in my car, I can’t listen to the CD on the way, but I nonetheless felt it was important to keep up the ritual and so I have created a “Trip to the Yard 2006” CD. In past years, I have strayed somewhat from cliche and traditional, but this year, I felt the need to come back home and make it a bit more traditional. Here’s the playlist:

1. Baseball–Home Run (Sound Effects)
2. William Tell Overture (London Symphony Orchestra)
3. Willie, Mickey, and “The Duke” (Talkin’ Baseball) (Terry Cashman)
4. The Boys Are Back In Town (Thin Lizzy)
5. Glory Days (Bruce Springsteen)
6. Tessie (Dropkick Murphys)
7. Take Me Out to the Ball Game (Jimmy Buffett)
8. Sweet Caroline (Neil Diamond)
9. All Star (Smash Mouth)
10. Catfish (Bob Dylan)
11. Centerfield (John Fogerty)
12.Right Field (Peter, Paul and Mary)
13. Enter Sandman (Metallica)
14. New York, New York (Frank Sinatra)
