- The Ballpark Organists
From BallParkTour.com, a listing of the organists for each MLB team. Interesting that baseball organists tend to be older than hockey organists. And also several women who play for MLB teams.
- Vince Lascheid, well-known organist, dies
This is an obit for the legendary Pittsburgh sports organist, who played for the Penguins, Pirates and Steelers. In one of those "wish I had a camera" moments, I saw his organ booth at PNC Park a few years ago. Wish I could have taken a picture of his hand-written notes and scores that were propped up on the organ, listing cues for various Pirates players past & present.
- Interview with Sue Nelson, organist for the Minnesota Twins
Love seeing her play those big "LETS GO TWINS" chords.
- Baseball's Timeless Tradition
Lambert Bartak has been playing the organ at the College World Series for 50 years. Love that they got a shot of him playing the pedals with sock feet -- not an uncommon thing but something you rarely see on video. (And he accompanied Johnny Carson many decades ago when he was still just a magician.)
- L.A. Dodgers organist Nancy Bea performing pre-game
- Bob Sheppard/Eddie Layton Tribute...Remembering Yankee Stadium
First time I've ever seen a guy who does "impressions" of a stadium organist

A bunch of baseball organ videos and links
Cleaning up the bookmark file, thought I would share some of these vids and articles for posterity.
