Twins Tunes #2: "Kitty Kaat"

Twins Tunes #2: "Kitty Kaat" Hello and welcome to the second installment of Twins Tunes. My name’s Louie.

The second edition features Jim Kaat, Senators/Twins pitcher from 1959 to 1973. He also looks like he could be my uncle. And is also a lefty pitcher!

If you like what you hear, feel free to share it on social media and whatnot. I don’t have any of those anymore, so if this thing’s gonna go viral, it’s up to you, Twins Daily masses.

Special thanks to my cousin Bubba, who mixed, engineered, produced, and mastered the track. You can check out his music at BubbaHolly.com or by searching for “Bubba Holly” on Spotify/BandCamp/wherever you get your music. His new album is terrific. Also, Bubba and I make music under the name Bunkin’ Cousins, if you’d like to hear concept albums about the late medieval period or epic cabin weekends.

(Also, if anyone knows how to embed a SoundCloud track, let me know! I'm struggling with it, so a link will have to suffice in the meantime.)

Without further adieu, enjoy “Kitty Kaat.”

Very well done! I also enjoyed the Randy Bush song. 

 

For those interested in baseball-related music, here's a link to an all-baseball show by folksinger John McCutcheon. Included in the show was a lengthy interview with Kaat.
