1. Take Me Out to the Ball-Game - sheet music c. 1908

    This is believed to be the first published regular edition of the famous baseball classic, “Take Me Out to the Ball Game.” Interestingly, Jack Norworth, the lyricist, is rumored to never have attended a major league baseball game before he wrote the words on a scrap of paper while riding a subway in New York. The original poem resides in the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York.
