Cleveland's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has announced a special exhibit exploring the connections between music and baseball. Due to open on Saturday, April 26, "Take Me Out: Baseball Rocks!" will be held in the museum's Ahmet M. Ertegun Main Exhibit Hall. According to a press release, it will feature "pop-culture phenomenon through displays of sheet music, sports memorabilia, records and film." It will also include areas devoted to baseball-related songs ("I Love Mickey," err, the Mets/Mariners anthem "Who Let the Dogs Out?"), musical tributes to legends of the game (Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, Willie Mays and many more), and artifacts of baseball players that also happened to be musicians, like R&B singer/Milwaukee Braves player Lee Maye.
