Presentation Transcript
“Take Me Out to the Ball Game”:The Rise and Fall of the Baseball OrganistMatthew MihalkaUniversity of Minnesota

“It is nonsensical so-called music consisting of dah-dah-dah—dah-dah-dah, and increasing in volume as the game progresses. . . If someone would ask me what could be done to improve big league baseball I would say “Take the blankety-blank organs out of all ballparks.”

  • Don Marsh, Los Angeles Times, 1987.

“[Ballpark organists] are a dying breed, replaced each year by another DJ blasting canned rock; squeezed out by M&M races, text message quizzes and all other forms of Jumbotron techno-blather designed, it seems, to entertain bored teenagers and make fans forget where they are.”

  • Melissa Isaacson, Chicago Tribune, 2004.
