I am fond of noting that while I am the rare male unfortunately born without the CAS (Cares About Sports) gene, I don’t really see much difference between your average sports nerd and your average record nerd.
If one can rattle off old box scores and player-trade minutiae, the other can remember chart positions, and who got kicked out of which band when and for what.
The Baseball Project is supergroup (dream team?) featuring Mike Mills and Peter Buck (R.E.M.), Steve Wynn (Dream Syndicate et al), and Scott McCaughey (Young Fresh Fellows et al).
They have somehow made three whole albums of catchy, jangly meat-and-potatoes pop/rock tunes that are exclusively about baseball.
I imagine if you know much about the pastime’s history, traditions and ephemera, you’ll enjoy them even more than I do.
