Baseball players who also (for lack of a better word) sang

Most of us are familiar with Jack McDowell‘s exploits as a guitar player, or Bernie Williams‘ love for jazz and the guitar. And of course, Bronson Arroyo put out a CD of grunge covers. But before them all, Ron Cey released a single, “One Game at a Time.” I can’t even begin to describe this song. You just have to hear it for yourself…

The b-side was a song called “Playing the Third Base Bag.”

Opening Day is a week away. I can’t wait.

Gypsy Queen – Ron Cey

I have come to appreciate Ron Cey over the past couple of years, thanks to a couple of Dodger fans. He had a very impressive six-year run as an All-Star for the NL from 1974-1979 and was the World Series MVP in 1981.

I have divested myself of Mets and Dodgers

Almost completely. With the exception of doubles and a few select cards, all of my Mets and Dodgers cards will be shipped out tomorrow to Mark, Jim, and Greg. I have Cardinals and Royals set aside for another, as soon as I hear how many Reds he can send. And you’re on deck. What’s your team? How many Reds do you have to trade?
