‘Centerfield’ is a song to inspire any endeavor

As I was driving to the zoo this past Tuesday, I was acutely aware of the early snow melt in the softball fields. With the sunshine and nice temperatures I suddenly was anxious for those venues to be overrun by ballplayers young and old.

The song, “Centerfield,” by John Fogerty came on the radio exactly at that time. Coincidence of course, but it reminded me of the story behind the song. Usually I don’t write about sports as I leave it to the folks who know it best. But, the song is so much more than baseball. It could be the catalyst for whatever we are facing during any given day. It is especially a perfect choice to hear before facing a big challenge, event, or celebration. Mr. Fogerty was my daymaker this week as I anxiously await springtime in the valley.

Do yourself a favor on Monday morning. Go to You Tube and play “Centerfield,” by Fogerty and give yourself a lift for the entire day. Trust me. I’ve been doing this same thing since the song’s release in 1985. Read on for more inspiring information on this only rock and roll sports song.
