Baseball Lovers Giveaway with Franklin Sports

I think most Americans can sing some if not all of the chorus of "Take me out to the ballgame" ...you know how it goes:  
Take me out to the ball game,
Take me out with the crowd;
Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack,
I don't care if I never get back.
Let me root, root, root for the home team,
If they don't win, it's a shame.
For it's one, two, three strikes, you're out,
At the old ball game.
The song was written way back in 1908 by a guy who had never gone to a game prior to writing the song!  No way is right! How can you write about a something that you haven't experienced?  Various versions have been written over the years and sang by many famous people, including Harry Carry.  When I was a kid growing up outside of Chicago, The Cubs got all my attention during baseball season.  I believe that I thought that Harry Carry was the only person who sang the song!  
Either way, the song is in our American history! You hear that and our National Anthem and you know you are at a ballgame!  My daughters, pictured above, is singing our National Anthem with their elementary school choir.  It was always an honor to participate in this event!  After they sang, we all sat together in a reserved section and had great times with other families.
