The song during the seventh ending stretch is as traditional as those crackerjacks, popcorn and a cool drink.
But why just pick a boring beer? Lots of wine varietals are standing alert ready to be called into the roster
“Take Me Out to the Ball Game” is a 1908 Tin Pan Alley song by Jack Norworth and Albert Von Tilzer which has become the unofficial anthem of North American baseball, although neither of its authors had attended a game prior to writing the song. The song’s chorus is traditionally sung during the middle of the seventh inning of a baseball game. Fans are generally encouraged to sing along, and at some ballparks, the words (GIANTS) “home team” are replaced with the team name.
Chardonnay called into to the game, pairs beautifully in tune with “Buy me some peanuts”. The oakey, buttery taste compliments the salt in the nuts.
A sweet, cold Riesling brings out the sugar in the box of Crackerjacks, toy included.
If hot dogs are on the line-up, then grab a bottle of Zinfandel with its deep purple hue and full body. .Or make up some pairings of your own.
It’s time to “Play Ball.”
