The Baseball Music Project

If you are a baseball and music lover who can't make it out to the game on Friday, there is another option.

No, it's not just an extended version of "Take Me Out to the Ballgame." The Baseball Music Project, founded in 2004, brings together the work of talented historians, writers, composers, arrangers, and performers to present a unique look at the sport. It uses an orchestra, 73 musicians strong, for propulsion and punctuation.

The Baseball Music Project, meanwhile, offers a sunnier version of the game's history, with carefully arranged versions of songs such as "The Baseball Polka" and "The Umpire Is a Most Unhappy Man." Don't worry: The vocal talent is major league.

If this something you might like to attend, here are the details:
