Joe Walsh: Rocky Mountain Way.

Not only does the song feature references to baseball:

"He's tellin' us this and he's tellin' us that,
Changes it every day
Says it doesn't matter

"Bases are loaded and Casey's at bat
Playin' it play by play
Time to change the batter..."

But the Colorado Rockies have incorporated it into home wins. If the Rox lead in the T9, the opening riffs to Rocky Mountain play with the first out, the second out, and then the song goes into full play on the third out.

My two favorite baseball songs are "A Dying Cubs Fan's Last Request" by Steve Goodman and "My Oh My" by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, which is a tribute to former Mariners announcer Dave Niehaus.

Here's one:

The Angels came in '61
To play in California's sun
Bill Rigney was the M-G-R that year
Daddy Wags could hit the pill
Take a Chance up on the hill
And junior circuit baseball was finally here


Talkin' Baseball, Bilko Bo Belinsky
Angel Baseball, Pearson and Osinsky
Rick Reichardt and Fregosi on the scene
Jim Spencer, "The Singer Throwing Machine"

Talkin' Baseball, the California team
The Halos' wings were up and down
But Johnson won The Batting Crown
The locals were all taken by The Express
There was never a lack of cash in the Angel saddlebags
And in '79 Gene Autry rode his Champion of the West


Talkin' Baseball, Mick "The Quick" and Lyman
Angel Baseball, Vada, Chalk and Ryan
McMullen, Figueroa and Fairley
Don Baylor, he was an MVP

Talkin' Baseball, The California team
When you’re Talkin' Angel baseball,
Lee Thomas and Bob Knoop
Clyde Wright won twenty games
Messersmith he did the same
Ryan's four no-hitters in three years
The batters were in tears...

-Cheers.

PS Tanana and Ryan and two days of cryin'
