Baseball season has begun!
In celebration of this, Modern Graphic History Library would like to present its rendition of the classic baseball song we all know and sing during the seventh inning stretch. (Please note, since MGHL is located at Washington University in St. Louis ... there might be a slight hometown bias.)
Take me out to the ballgame ...
Take me out with the crowd.
Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack.
I don't care if I never get back.
Let me root, root, root for the home team ...
If they don't win, it's a shame.
For it's one, two ...
three strikes you're out ...
at the old ballgame!
