HAPPY 4TH OF JULY TO MY AMERICAN READERS!!
June 2016 - Pittsburgh PA
John went to the US Open in Pittsburgh last week. He spent some time wandering downtown around the PNC Park, home of the Pittsburgh Pirates.
"Take Me Out to the Ball Game" is a 1908 Tin Pan Alley song by Jack Norworth and Albert Von Tilzer which has become the unofficial anthem of North American baseball, although neither of its authors had attended a game prior to writing the song. The song (chorus only) is traditionally sung during the middle of the seventh inning of a baseball game. Fans are generally encouraged to sing along, and at some ballparks, the words "home team" are replaced with the team name.
This, in turn, reminded me of our visit to Fenway Park in Boston.
