“Opening Day” begins as a baseball game with an excerpt from our National Anthem. Then we “Play Ball” with an up-tempo opener variation on “Take Me Out to the Ball Game”. Next, we change pace with a visit to the “Hall of Fame” with a musical tribute to three baseball legends. “Ruth” is represented with some ragtime jazz, “Robinson” is represented by "Overcome”, and Ryan with “The Yellow Rose of Texas". The next segment is “Sounds of the Game” and is a collection of music we hear at the game----along with some rockin’ percussion. We continue with “7th Inning Stretch”, “Bottom of the 9th/The Wind-up/The Pitch/ and Walk-Off Home Run!” bringing our baseball tribute to a major league finale!
