Once upon a time, the “Seventh Inning Stretch” belonged to “Take Me out to the Ballgame” solely. Perhaps you would also hear/sing “God Bless America” on Memorial Day or the Fourth of July. Then 9/11 happened, and some teams responded by playing “God Bless America” during EVERY subsequent game.
Given varying levels of patriotism, nationalism and/or religious dedication, some people have grown weary of “God Bless America.” If you are one of those people, the VORG presents you with the following . . . “God Bless America” using only Major or Minor League player names. The next time you are asked to rise and remove your cap, if you don’t care to sing the original “GBA” again, try it with these lyrics.
