I remember this 1985 hit mostly from it’s appearance in Bull Duraham. John Fogerty’s Centerfield (not to be confused with another of my favorite 80’s tunes, Centerfold) is just a nice, happy, sunny summer day type of song; but today I’m going with it in honor of Game 1 of the World Series.
The one thing I’m going to say about the World Series is that I am very glad the St. Louis Cardinals are not in it. With an 88-74 regular season record, they came oh so close to getting there for the 3rd time in 6 years, despite being the worst team in the league to qualify for the playoffs on each occasion. The fluky-ness of their postseason success was really starting to irritate me.
