Baseball's Greatest Hits - The Music of Our National Game

This exhibition features baseball sheet music from the collections of the Music Division at the Library of Congress. Most of these works are original copyright deposits and represent only a small fraction of the more than 400 published songs about baseball in the Music Division’s custody. They illustrate the remarkable congruence between the evolution of the sport from before the Civil War to the present, and the musical counterparts that have chronicled in song baseball’s greatest moments. Audiovisual presentations in the gallery have been created using song selections from the Motion Picture, Broadcasting and Recorded Sound Division. To all the fans who are here to view the music and listen to the songs—feel free to join in and sing: “. . . One, two, three strikes, you’re out, at the old ballgame!”
