Nothing better than baseball music

In case you missed it, The Baseball Project released its first album last week -Volume 1: Frozen Ropes and Dying Quails. It's a random project from a couple of guys from REM among others and the original songs cover baseball greats and some infamous moments in the sport.

The big song they're pushing to start with is Past Time, which explores whether baseball is past its prime because all the great things in the game happened so long ago. There are tributes to Ted Williams, Harry Haddix, Satchel Paige and more. Well worth checking out.
