Former Comet and current graduate school pianist Harrison Sheckler has two loves in this life: baseball and music. Earlier during the pandemic, Sheckler created a virtual choir rendition of ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’, that starred over 300 musicians and touted over 1 million views on YouTube.
With this ample success in his memory, and with Major League Baseball restarting on July 23rd, Sheckler decided to do another virtual choir. This one a classic: ‘Take Me Out To The Ballgame’ and starring a former MLB player.
Sheckler went to undergrad in Cincinnati and became a frequent at Reds games. This jump-started many friendships between him and the players – Arroyo was one of these budded friendships.
The result of Sheckler’s call to action created a rendition of the song with over 200 baseball fans and a combination of baseball players and broadcasters.
The video currently has over 15,000 views on YouTube and can be watched at this link:
