Recording engineer: Steven Kray, with technical assistance from Randy Layton
With a catalog of clever songs all derived in one way or another from our national past time, The Baseball Project-- Scott McCaughey, Steve Wynn, Linda Pitmon and Peter Buck-- joins us to play from the new Vol. 2: High & Inside. The band talks about that second helping (with plans perhaps for a third) and ruminates on the seemingly endless supply of stories and characters baseball and its history provide for songwriting fodder-- from Ichiro Suzuki and Bill Buckner to Carl Mays and Big Ed Delahenty.
Look for the band on upcoming dates in the midwest and east coast.
