This week’s Three For Thursday theme is…
“BASEBALL – MR. OCTOBER” – All of the songs have a baseball connection and were released in the month of October – the most exciting month for Major League Baseball.
ZAKK WYLDE – Winner of Baseball Tonight Theme Contest. Wylde, an avid baseball fan, beat out Seether, Staind and Tom Morello in the contest.
MEAT LOAF – “Paradise By The Dashboard Light” features a play-by-play by legendary Hall Of Famer, Phil “Scooter” Rizzuto. When he recorded the piece, he was unaware of the double entendre context in which it was to be used. It came to light that he was “snookered” by Meat Loaf when Rizzuto’s parish priest called him in shock.
NICKELBACK – Lyric…”and a bathroom I can play baseball in…”
