The birth of baseball was followed quickly by the birth of baseball songs. The first piece of such music was The Baseball Polka written in 1858. The most popular of baseball songs, Take Me Out to the Ball-Game, was penned by two songsters who had never even seen the game. This song has become the game's anthem.
