Ed Meeker – “Take Me Out To the Ball Game”

The World Series always makes me think of Ed Meeker and his classic song “Take Me Out To The Ball Game” on Edison recordings. What a chorus! Next year is this songs 100th anniversary. People everywhere still sing it. Now that’s popular music! This version is ripped from a 78 RPM recording, but the quality and gusto of Ed’s voice resonates magnificently. Remember: “One, Two, Strikes, You’re Out at the Old Ball Game.” Go Giants!
