Put Me In, Coach: Songs Inspired by Baseball

“Glory Days” by Bruce Springsteen

This ode to days gone by starts off with a verse about Springsteen’s real-life Little League baseball teammate Joe DePugh, whose “speedball” was the stuff of legend. The song was accompanied by a baseball-centric video, with Bruce’s character throwing pitches to an imaginary lineup that ultimately defeats him in the bottom of the ninth. Curse you, Graig Nettles! —Jeff Royer
