There Used To Be A Ballpark Lyrics - Frank Sinatra

Review The Song (3)

"Oh, there used to be a ball park
where the field was warm and green,
and the people played a crazy game
with a joy I've never seen.

How the people watched with wonder,
how they laughed and how they cheered
Yes, there used to be a ball park....
right here....

And the people ate rock candy
on a great big 4th of July
and the fireworks exploded
all across the summer sky.

And the air was filled with wonder
from the hot dogs and the beer
Yes, there used to be a ball park...
right here....

Now the children try to find it,
and they can't believe their eyes
For the old team isn't playing,
and the new team hardly tries

And the sky has gotten cloudy
when it used to be so clear
and the summer....went so quickly...
this year....

Yes, there used to be a ball park...
right here....

I am a Pittsburgh Pirates Fan | Reviewer: Dee | 8/4/11

I am a Pittsburgh Pirates fan. I have been since Roberto Clemente played at Three Rivers Stadium. Our Bucs miraculously recovered from the bottom last year to First Place Central in July this year. I saved the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette headlines heralding our First Place position; something we have not seen in 19 years. Baseball has been revived in our City by these young scrappy players and we have had sell-out crowds and it was a glorious sight to see PNC Park filled to standing-room-only. I am a 1st time season ticket holder this year and with hope in my heart said "this is the year we are going to be contenders" at the time I was purchasing my season tickets in the dead of Winter. Now they are in a 6 game losing slump and this song was played by our local sports talk station as a montage of the season. I had never heard this song before and became so emotional at the beautiful words and how it is so appropos to our team at the moment. Keep singing this song, Frank, wherever you are and perhaps it will help our Buccos find their "ballpark" again.

Old Ball Park Becomes Alive Again | Reviewer: Richard Vincent Schiro | 6/7/10

Only Frank Sinatra "The Chairman Of The Board", could make a ball park come alive again because, no one could pharse a song like he did absolutly perfect, the words just flow out of his mouth like it was written for him only, and only him, and imagine him saying "I am only a lounge singer", I only hope he is singing in heaven, because I will be all ears, and happy again.

The Story Behind the Song | Reviewer: Eric Ebacher | 3/19/08

The story behind this song is the old Ebbett's Field in New York City's Brooklyn borough, where the Dodgers played from the late 1890s-early 1900s until 1957, when it was announced they would be moved to Los Angeles where they have played ever since. (Ebbett's Field was demolished in the spring of 1960 to make way for a new housing complex.)
