The first baseball song ever


WORLD'S FIRST
BASEBALL SONG

THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

What was the world's first baseball song?

It didn't take long once the first baseball games were played for the first song about baseball to be written.

The world's first known baseball song was composed in 1858 by J. R. Blodgett and titled 'The Base Ball Polka!'

Perhaps the most famous baseball song was written by Jack Norworth while on a train in 1908; 'Take Me Out to the Ball Game'

The lyrics to 'Take Me Out to the Ball Game' were changed in 1927 to the song we all love and know now, but since we couldn't find the lyrics to 'The Base Ball Polka!', here are the original 'Take Me Out to the Ball Game' lyrics for your baseball singing pleasure:

Take Me Out to the Ball Game
Author: Jack Norworth
Composer: Albert Von Tilzer
Published in: 1908

Katie Casey was base ball mad.
Had the fever and had it bad;
Just to root for the home town crew,
Evry sou Katie blew.
On a Saturday, he young beau
Called to see if she'd like to go,
To see a show but Miss Kate said,
"No, I'll tell you what you can do."

"Take me out to the ball game,
Take me out with the crowd.
Buy me some peanuts and cracker jack,
I don't care if I never get back,

Let me root, root, root for the home team,
If they don't win it's a shame.
For it's one, two, three strikes, you're out,
At the old ball game."

Katie Casey saw all the games,
Knew the players by their first names;
Told the umpire he was wrong,
All along good and strong.
When the score was just two to two,
Katie Casey knew what to do,
Just to cheer up the boys she knew,
She made the gang sing this song:

"Take me out to the ball game,
Take me out with the crowd.
Buy me some peanuts and cracker jack,
I don't care if I never get back,

Let me root, root, root for the home team,
If they don't win it's a shame.
For it's one, two, three strikes, your out,
At the old ball game."
