Joe Pernice has baseball fever

By liz

In honor of his beloved Red Sox who apparently have a chance this year at World Series play... Joe Pernice has penned a new song available for download on his website. An ode to Manny Ramirez, the song "Moonshot Manny (Pega Luna Manny)" came about as...

"At some point in the middle of the season I started singing, "Manny hit me home with a moonshot, baby" to the TV set every time Manny would step up to the plate. Just as my falsetto was shaping up fairly and the tune was actually becoming a song, my wife started singing it too. Then our friends joined in. Pretty soon a gang of us was dancing around the apartment, singing the tune and making a racket of our own."

All proceeds for the song are being donated to First Night Boston, a community-based outreach and arts education program.
