Put Me In, Coach: Songs Inspired by Baseball

“Dying Cubs Fan’s Last Request” by Steve Goodman

While engaged against a battle with leukemia which he would soon lose, Chicago Cubs devotee Goodman wrote a trilogy of songs about his beloved team, including “When the Cubs Go Marching In,” “Go, Cubs, Go” (still broadcast today at Wrigley Field) and this winking admonishment of his team for being what he called “the doormat of the National League.” —Jeff Royer
