The Electric Slugger


indexWhat do the symphony and baseball have to do with one another? Apparently, a lot. Glenn Donnellan is a violinist with the National Symphony Orchestra in Washington, D.C.

This is so amazingly cool. Just another example of how baseball, music, and art influence one another…

Happy Friday!
