Another is our series of MP3 offerings. This time its the classic, Did you see Jackie Robinson Hit that Ball? After its release, this song hit #13 on the music charts in 1949. Number 13! Its funny how times change. I doubt a song about A-Rod would make its way up the charts in such a hurry… This is the Count Basie version. Below are the lyrics to this all-time classic.

Did you see Jackie Robinson hit that ball?

It went zoomin cross the left field wall.

Yeah boy, yes, yes. Jackie hit that ball.

And when he swung his bat,

the crowd went wild,

because he knocked that ball a solid mile.

Yeah boy, yes, yes. Jackie hit that ball.

Satchel Paige is mellow,

so is Campanella,

Newcombe and Doby, too.

But it’s a natural fact,

when Jackie comes to bat,

the other team is through.

Did you see Jackie Robinson hit that ball?

Did he hit it? Yeah, and that ain’t all.

He stole home.

Yes, yes, Jackie’s real gone.

Did you see Jackie Robinson hit that ball?

Did he hit it? Yeah, and that ain’t all.
He stole home.

Yes, yes, Jackie’s real gone.

Jackie’s is a real gone guy.
