The Baseball Project Set Dates
The Baseball Project has announced a tour of major and minor league ballparks, clubs and festivals throughout July. The tour kicks off at NYC’s City Winery as a part of the CBGB Festival. The band will also perform at Fenway Park to sing the National Anthem for the Red Sox-Yankees game.
The Baseball Project features Steve Wynn, Linda Pitmon, Scott McCaughey, as well as R.E.M.’s Mike Mills on bass (filling in for his former R.E.M. co-founder Peter Buck). As the band’s name implies, The Baseball Project finds inspiration from America’s pastime; writing witty songs about baseball, it’s players and teams. For their second album, The Baseball Project reached out to baseball fans and fellow rockers like Death Cab For Cutie’s Ben Gibbard, Los Lobos’ Steve Berlin, the Decemberists’ Chris Funk and John Moen, Yo La Tengo’s Ira Kaplan and the Hold Steady’s Craig Finn to contribute. Finn will share a bill with The Baseball Project at New York’s City Winery on July 5 and likely join them for the Minnesota Twins anthem he recorded for The Baseball Project’s new record.
