Synopsis

Album Description
"A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives." -Jackie Robinson What is it about the sport of baseball that inspires people to pay homage to the game through verse and music? After all, when is the last time you heard a good tennis or golf song? There are a lot of good baseball songs out there. So many, in fact, that it's impossible to put them all in one single collection. This marks the beginning of the Diamond Cuts collection of baseball songs and poems. Diamond Cuts celebrates our national pastime, honors former Negro and Major League player greats, provides lesser know contributing artists with national exposure, attracts new fans to the game, and deepens existing fan's appreciation for the game. This collection was inspired by a passion for baseball, music, and helping others. The proceeds of Diamond Cuts will provide funds for Hungry for Music. We hope you have has much fun listening to Diamond Cuts as we did putting it together.
