No-hitters are back in style in a big way this season, but if a major league hitter can finally get the first Triple Crown in 43 years, it would certainly be a flashback to the 1960s. That has inspired The Baseball Project to release the '60s pop-styled "(Do The) Triple Crown," the latest in the band's season-long Broadside Ballads series of songs.
Although the players mentioned in the song have faded a little in one statistic category or another, singer and guitarist Steve Wynn and his Baseball Project bandmates try to capture the magic that would sweep the nation if Detroit's Miguel Cabrera, Texas' Josh Hamilton, Cincinnati's Joey Votto or St. Louis' Albert Pujols makes a strong run at the first Triple Crown since Boston's Carl Yastrzemski led the American League with a .326 batting average, 44 home runs and 121 RBIs in 1967.
"(Do The) Triple Crown" is the fifth entry in The Baseball Project's season-long Broadside Ballads series of songs that the band is giving away for free on ESPN.com's The Life. Read more here: sports.espn.go.com/espn/thelife/music/news/story?id=5442571
