So there are two really great things about this record:
1. There's a penguin on the label!
2. It's not even two-and-a-half minutes long...
Then again, that's the B-side of the record. Maybe the A-side is fantastic! I mean, sure, the Beatles' 45's were great on both sides. But who remembers the B-side of "Kung Fu Fighting"? Or "Muhammad Ali (Black Superman)"? What really "makes" a record is the A-side. The artist's very best work. Here's Dan Epstein:
I specifically asked to wear #10 in little league, hoping that the magic of Ron's Dodger uniform number would somehow rub off on me. It didn't. But even though I never developed enough of an arm to play third base anywhere near as well as Ron Cey, I can safely say I'm the better singer. In 1976, Ron cut two "country" songs for a 7-inch single, "One Game at a Time" and "Playing the Third Base Bag," both of which were cringe-makingly awful from conception to execution. Not that Ron would disagree; asked about the single during an MLB.com chat about five years back, he answered with typical good humor, "It was done just for fun. It wasn't a ballad. Anyone who thought I was going to pursue a singing career... well, obviously I was not a candidate for 'American Idol.' "
But if you positively absolutely must know for yourself, here's "Playing the Third Base Bag" (nsfw, oae).
