“Night Game” by Paul Simon
Paul Simon wins the dubious award for the most depressing baseball-themed song, a sad ode to a fictional pitcher who died on the mound in the “bottom of the eighth” with “two men down.” The game is lost, the season is lost, the night turned colder than the moon, the stars were white as bones. Wow. Thanks, Paul. —Jeff Royer
