April 6, 2010 -- Baseball website Greatest Lineup Ever celebrated the start of the 2010 baseball season by launching its debut CD this week. The album, entitled "Baseball Songs Vol. 1", introduces 10 original songs written from the perspective of a lifelong fan.
Drawing on musical styles similar to artists like Billy Joel and Randy Newman, the recordings feature prominent piano paired with clear baritone vocals that deliver familiar stories from the ballpark. Songs range from the nostalgic ("Highlight Reel", "Perfect Game") and the melancholy ("Rain Delay"); to the humorous ("15 Day DL") and the hopeful ("Wait Til Next Year").
"There are so many highlight reel moments that we all shared together as fans," says producer/songwriter Ben Stellpflug. "I wanted to try to capture the energy and the emotion of that experience...the ups and downs of following a team through an entire season."
Greatest Lineup Ever founders will be following one team a little closer this season. For every run the Boston Red Sox score before the All-Star break, Greatest Lineup Ever will be donating a dollar to one of the Red Sox favorite charities.
