Baseball and Aretha Franklin


Aretha Franklin passed away earlier today in her home in Detroit. The Queen of Soul sang the National Anthem at not one, but two World Series, and gave us this amazing version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame:”

 

In 2013, Aretha Franklin was awarded the Beacon of Change Award by Major League Baseball.

Thank you for your contributions to the world and, especially, to baseball – may you rest in peace, Ms. Franklin.
