Where did the "It's a beautiful day for a ball game" song come from?
I first heard this song during the '65 WS highlight film. It goes like this:
It's a beautiful day for a ball game,
A ball game today,
The fans are out to get a ticket or two,
From Walla Walla Washington to Kalamazoo,
It's a beautiful day for a home run,
But even a triple's OK,
We're gonna cheer...and boo...and raise a hullaballoo,
at the ball game today.
Where did this song come from? Was it written for that film, or did they get it from some other source? If so, what?
"If he's a good fastball hitter...should I throw him a bad fastball?"
