The season's seventh inning stretch

take me out to the ball game minnesota twins seventh inning stretch
The season's seventh inning stretch It is the seventh inning stretch of the 60 game season and I thought we might have to alter the baseball anthem just a little bit to make it work;

Katie Casey was baseball mad
Had the fever and had it bad
Just to root for the hometown crew
EVERY DAY
In the baby blue
On a Saturday her young beau
Called to see if she'd like to go
To see a show, but Miss Kate said "No
I'll tell you what you can do:"


You can’t take me out to the ball game
Or take me out with the crowd;
But you can buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack
And I don't care if they ever come back
I will root, root, root for the home team
Whoever they are, but we’ll never know - and it's a shame
For it's still one, two, three strikes, you're out
At the strange new ball game


Katie Casey watched all the games
Knew the players by their first names
Told the umpire he was wrong
All along
Good and strong
When the score was just two to two
Katie Casey knew what to do
Just to cheer up the boys at her home
She made the gang sing this song:


I wish you could take me out to the ball game
Take me out with the virtual crowd;
Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack
I don't care if I never get back
Let me root, root, root for some home team
If they don't win, it's a shame
For it's one, two, three strikes, you're out
At the old ball game – I think.

This 1908 Tin Pan Alley song by Jack Norworth and Albert Von Tilzer is the unofficial anthem of MLB. The authors never attended a game, but their hit ranks with Happy Birthday for well known songs in the USA.
