From the Worldwide Leader in Sports comes yet another horrible, horrible idea. Baseball Tonight is celebrating the 100th anniversary of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” by having nine bands (we use the term quite loosely) record their own unique and personal version of the song which will then be put up to a vote to determine the winner of the battle of the bands. On Sunday’s episode of the show, they couldn’t find a real musician, so they just threw Peter Gammons in front of a camera and told him to sing. Don’t believe us? Here’s the old, wrinkled proof.
