Take me out to the ball game

Back in my day, we would have never dreamt of paying money to watch grown men run around a diamond after hitting a ball with a stick. I must admit that while I understand apple pie and mom, I don't understand this game.

But that doesn't mean it's not a big deal for the millions that passionately follow baseball. If I had a favorite team, it would be the Philadephia Phillies (of course.)

One song that captures the essence of nostalgia for baseball is "Take Me Out to The Ball Game", and the Postal Service is honoring the 100th anniversary of that tune with a great stamp.

Our friends over at Stamps of Distinction have a great post on the story behind the song. Pretty interesting stuff.
