BBC News - Baseball organist crowdsources music requests

"Organists have been a key part of the baseball experience in ballparks across the US since the 1940s. Their distinctive sound marks the moment when a batter from the opposing team heads to the plate.
And since the 1970s, when Nancy Faust sat behind the keyboard in Chicago and reinvented the role, the organ has also been used to have a playful, sometimes satirical, dig at the onfield enemy.
Matthew Kaminski, the organist for the Atlanta Braves, has been making fans laugh - and players occasionally fume - with his choice of tunes since 2009."

As badly as I've hated having to hear "Thank God I'm A Country Boy" during the seventh inning stretch every time I've been to an Orioles home game since the late '70's, I'd rather put up with that than some damn organ playing throughout the game.
