  • Willie, Mickey, and the Duke are on the cover of Terry Cashman's "Talkin' Baseball" single, but out of order: That's Duke Snider on the left, Willie Mays in the middle, and Mickey Mantle on the right.

  • Brian from Conn.Is that Scott Spray on Bass???
  • John from Chicago I thought the original version had Joe D, Joe D, Joe D as the final refrain instead of Say Hey, Say Hey, Say Hey
  • Jennifur Sun from RamonaFirst time I heard this was in 84 when Padres went to the world series.
  • Brent from Denair, CaEvery baseball fan can appreciate this song. You did not even need to grow up in the 50's, just understanding the history is enough. Awesome video as well.
