Review

Baseball's Greatest Hits presents the history of America's favorite pastime in music and audio sound clips. Two versions of the baseball anthem "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" -- by Doc Watson Merle and "Bruce Springstone," respectively -- are among the tributes to the game itself, while Mickey Mantle's "I Love Mickey," Les Brown His Orchestra's "Joltin' Joe DiMaggio," and Count Basie's "Did You See Jackie Robinson Hit That Ball?" praise some of the game's greatest stars. Clips of Abbott Costello's "Who's on First," Lou Gherig's farewell speech, and Bobby Thomson's "shot heard 'round the world" add humor and history to this thoughtfully, affectionately crafted tribute to baseball, which also includes the Treniers' "Say Hey (The Willie Mays Song)," the Intruders' "(Love Is Like A) Baseball Game," and Terry Cashman's "Willie, Mickey the Duke (Talkin' Baseball)." An essential collection of music and memories for fans of baseball's golden age. ~ Heather Phares, Rovi
