Greetings Infomaniacs,

Anyone who has ever been to a baseball game has undoubtedly 
heard the familiar lyrics, "Take me out to the ball game, 
take me out with the crowd..." However, I bet you never 
knew that this classic tune was created in 1908 when 
entertainer/songwriter Jack Norworth scribbled some lyrics 
on scrap paper during a train ride to Manhattan, New York.
 
Norworth later gave the lyrics to Albert Von Tilzer who 
composed the music, and the song went on to be published by 
the New York Music Company. "Take Me Out to the Ball Game"
was a hit before the year was over! It took Norworth a total 
of 15 minutes to write a song that has been sung during the 
seventh inning stretch at nearly every baseball game in the 
country.

Now that you know a little bit more history about baseball's 
favorite song, let's find out a few more tidbits about 
the sport that has become an American pastime. 

Enjoy!
