The Ultimate List of Baseball Music for the Ballpark [Playlist Included]

Posted by Camille D.C. Sutton | Feb 10, 2016 12:05:30 PM


When I think back on my childhood, I remember it spent at the ballpark. And I can remember my first Major League game like it was yesterday.

And the baseball music that accompanied so many of these moments.

But what I loved the most, were the sounds I heard. The crack of the bat. The thump of a strike. The roar of a sea of people. The boos. The ump's call: strike three. The silence before the pivotal moment.

That is what we want to talk about in today's blog: BASEBALL MUSIC. The musical notes that take us right back to the ballpark.

Read on to hear the songs of baseball that mark the times. And your childhood.

There's a song for every possible moment in baseball culture. And to prove it, we have a list of songs marked by the game, and will undoubtedly keep you coming back for more.


The Ultimate Baseball Music Ballpark Soundtrack


National Anthem - Demi Lovato

Starting the game off right.


Take Me Out to the Ballgame

You'll hear the first verse and then you'll recognize this timeless classic.


Sweet Caroline - Neil Diamond - Red Sox

When you need a good song to remind you of the reason you love baseball.


Don't Stop Believin - Journey - SF Giants

This battle cry has ignited many a Giant rally.


The Boys of Summer - Don Henley - Dodgers

A song lamenting the move of the Brooklyn Dodgers to Los Angeles.


The Natural - Texas Rangers

If there is a more heroically appropriate homerun song, please step forward and share it.


We Are Family - Sister Sledge - Pittsburgh Pirates

If you don't feel like hugging a Pirates fan by the end of this song, we're probably not family.


Cleveland Rocks - Ian Hunter - Clevelands

It may be cheesy, but it gets the fans lit.


Celebration - Kool & The Gang - Oakland A's

Their rise to prominence as real contenders is cause for celebration.


Bye Bye Baby - Giants

This song just about made a Giants fan outta me.


Baltimore Magic - Orioles

I seriously hope they NEVER pull this song out of the homegame song rotation.


Meet the Mets - Mets

"Step right up and greet the Mets!
Bring your kiddies,
bring your wife;
Guaranteed to have the time of your life." Truer words, you will never find.


Here Come the Yankees - Yankees

What a fight song. Play this and you're sure to get amped.


Go Go Astros - Astros

They're breathing orange fire down in Houston.


Brewer Fever - Brewer

There are quite a bit of puns at work in this one.


The Sand Man - Closer - Mariano Rivera

You'll find this song listed under "Intimidation" in your Merrium-Webster's. 


Hell's Bells - Closer - Trevor Hoffman

Truly, hitters must hate the effect this song has on team morale.


America the Beautiful - Ray Charles - Sandlot 

Baseball, 'Merica.
