I have corrected the subtitles from my previous upload here.
"Strike one," etc. is corrected to "One strike," etc., as indicated in the
original score published by Belwin Mills. I think this changes the historic flavor a bit and is more authentic. Thanks to you all for your indulgence.

Here I have stepped slightly out of bounds (afoul?) as regarding my classical repertoire with Zez Confrey's "Home Run on the Keys." But in a sense this piece (and similar ones) is every bit as classic as a Chopin waltz or mazurka.
The Belwin Mills publication credits two other authors for "Home Run on the Keys" in addition to Confrey. After looking at the Belwin publication I notice that "strike one," "ball two," etc. (as placed into my previous video) are called "one strike," "two balls," etc. in the score. Nitpicking perhaps?

Zez Confrey (1895 – 1971) was a classically trained American pianist and composer of novelty piano and jazz music. “Home Run on the Keys” is a rarely heard musical depiction of a baseball game. In a 1937 Vitaphone short, Confrey appears as pianist with Babe Ruth acting as “umpire.”

It says that playback on other websites has been disabled by the video owner. But I was wondering whether your next piece might be Some Southpaw Pitching, by Ives.

You can click on the link ‘watch on YouTube’ to hear it.

I suspect that "playback on other websites has been disabled" because the chap who posted it needs or wants payment for the advertising on youtube. If you play the video though a third-party website like this one the youtube advertising wouldn't be shown.

I don't know a lot about youtube, so someone can correct me if my understanding is wrong.
