Tomorrow is my first softball game of the season. The Benchwarmers have no title to defend: it is for the love of the game. Today’s song of the day honors the beginning of the season. It has entered amateur ballpark lore for me a few years ago, though I have yet to hear it on Fenway’s public address system. Even so, I’ll bring my best Kenny Powers to the mound.
Note that the song is much greater and more powerful than the clip heard over the Eastbound and Down title card. It starts driving at the first measure and never stops.
