Summer Baseball Soundtrack


Ok so I know summer is kinda already over thanks to the cooler weather that has graced Durham, NC, but that doesn’t mean I want it to be over! I’m already missing the days where I can pull on some shorts and a tank top and head out for errands or work. I’m already missing driving with my windows down and sunroof open, and feeling the warm sun hit my skin. I’m already missing Durham Bulls games that mean summer is in full force.

Although the Bulls’ season is over, tonight there’s a big game being played on Durham Bulls turf – the Triple-A National Championship game! It’s between the Reno Aces and the Pawtucket Red Sox. And, through a random turn of events, I ended up with tickets to the game… so guess who will be getting one last baseball fix at the DBAP tonight??? 😉

Anyways, today’s post is dedicated to some of the awesome music I heard this summer at the Bulls games. Seriously, awesome music. I made a playlist on Spotify that I dubbed “Bulls playlist” because it was that awesome. And, because I think you should get a chance to enjoy some of the tunes played at the games, I’m sharing the music with you today!

Skillet – Comatose

Alex Clare – Too Close (Henry Wrigley‘s walk-up song)

Matt & Kim – Daylight

The Village People – Y.M.C.A. ((Classic song for a baseball game!))
