More than three decades ago, Howie Newman released
Baseball’s Greatest Hits, Volume 1. It is believed to be the
first album consisting solely of original baseball songs (well,
at least he believes it).

For the most part, his baseball music is funny and satirical,
yet it embraces an authentic understanding of the sport.

Although many songwriters have followed suit over the past
three decades, few have approached his wit and fond
appreciation of the game.
Baseball's Greatest Hits, Volume 2, is the latest CD of funny baseball songs by Howie Newman.
