John Fogerty’s “Centerfield” has logged more time in baseball stadiums than most Hall of Famers. Now, the classic song is about to get its due in Cooperstown.

The Baseball Hall of Fame said that “Centerfield” will be honored at this summer’s induction ceremonies, the first time a musician or a song has been celebrated as a part of the festivities.

“As a little boy I loved baseball. I dreamed about being a major league player. Of course it didn’t work out that way. But to be associated at all, in any way, is a wonderful honor,” he said.

Already in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Fogerty will perform the song at the sport’s shrine on July 25.

Take it away John:
