Ok Blue Jays, Let's Play Ball!

bluejaysI'm still trying to hunt down a good MP3 of Gord Downie's "Hallelujah", but there is another song on my hit list. I'd absolutely love a digital version of our old Blue Jays song "Ok Blue Jays Let's Play Ball".

I have such fantastic memories of that stupid song. I used one horrendous line as my quote of the week back in September 2004. I attended many games at Exhibition Stadium and we'd always sing our song. I believe they still sing a small part of the song during the seventh inning stretch (I'll confirm this next month), but I don't think the full version has been sung in years. I miss it.

If you can help me secure this important part of my childhood and early Blue Jays history, wonderful karma will be yours to wallow in for all eternity.

I can confirm that they still play the song for the seventh inning stretch, or at least they did 3 weeks ago (give or take). In fact as far as I can tell all they've done over the years is add a slight electronic beat to it. Still the same old guy singing it, same old lyrics, same pre-recorded crowd singing along. :)

That's good to hear. I went to a couple of games last year, but for some reason I thought we were only singing "ok blue jays, let's play ball.." instead of the whole kit and caboodle.

I wanna hear "We got the diamond..."

I am also looking for this song, the original, if possible! I used to live in Hamilton, ON, but moved to Ireland in 1986. When I was about 4 or 5 years old (c.1984) I have a record of it (33rpm). It was lost in the move unfortunately.

If anyone can help, my e-mail address is visible!

Seanie.

I would love a MP3 or Itune version of it. I made a bet with our Boston reop last year and now he has to sing it at our national meeting this weekend while in blue jay uniform. If you could email it ASAP that would be awesome. Jays rule. Jim
