“Centerfield” by John Fogerty
John Fogerty wrote this ballpark staple after taking in the 1984 Major League Baseball All-Star Game from the centerfield bleachers. With the now-famous lyrics “Put me in, coach, I’m ready to play,” “Centerfield” remains one of the most popular baseball-themed songs of all time. —Jeff Royer
