Cardinals meet classical: St. Louis Symphony plays "Take Me Out to the Ballgame"

You don't normally think of the words "symphony" and "sports" in the same sentence - but when they interact, the results can be pretty fun.

To show their support for our hometown baseball brethren, the St. Louis Symphony offers this rendition of ballpark standard "Take Me Out to the Ballgame." Give it a listen!
