Baseball is America's pastime, so naturally, several songs have been written about the sport. Here is our list celebrating the best songs about baseball, ranked by your votes. Many baseball songs are written about specific baseball players, but a few are about specific teams. Several good rock songs that reference baseball have been written over the years.

John Fogerty's “Centerfield” is a classic baseball song. “Oh, put me in coach, I'm ready to play today/Put me in coach, I'm ready to play today/Look at me, I can be centerfield,” he sings on this great tune. Another of the top baseball songs would have to be Meat Loaf's “Paradise by the Dashboard Light.” The play-by-play breakdown in the middle of this track is unforgettable.

Eddie Vedder wrote his song, “All the Way,” in honor of the Chicago Cubs and Jay-Z mentions the New York Yankees in his hit, “Empire State of Mind.” Bob Dylan's “Catfish” is an ode to the pitcher Catfish Hunter.
