The Baseball Project




The Baseball Project, composed of Peter Buck, Scott McCaughey, Steve Wynn and Linda Pitmon, formed in 2007. The performers came together from discussions between McCaughey and Wynn at R.E.M.’s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Baseball Project writes and performs a winning collection of songs about the game’s greats that will be pleasing to those who love America’s pastime — and fans of intelligent, melodic and fun rock. (note: Sal Maida of the band Cracker replaced Peter Buck on bass for this On Canvas feature performance)
