Information about the song

I see those old hurlers in my mind
It makes me think about a younger time
Today's pitchers ain't got the same tools
I like those old time pitchers duels

Don't try to take me to a slugfest
A home run contest with McGwire and Sam
I'd rather see 'em turn a triple play, man
I like those old time pitchers duels

Still like those old time pitchers duels
Don't need a designated hitter rule
A one to nothing game is really cool
With those old time pitchers duels

(guitar solo)

I wanna see another Koufax
Tom Seaver, Drysdale or Bob Gibson would do
There's only one thing I can say that is true
I need an old time pitchers duel

Call me a relic, call me what you will
Say I'm old fashioned, say I'm over the hill
Today's pitchers ain't got the same tools
I like those old time pitchers duels

Still like those old time pitchers duels
Don't need a designated hitter rule
A one to nothing game is really cool
With those old time pitchers duels

(sax solo)

Still like those old time pitchers duels
Don't need a designated hitter rule
A one to nothing game is really cool
With those old time pitchers duels

(vocals with drums only)
Still like those old time pitchers duels
Don't need a designated hitter rule
A one to nothing game is really cool
With those old time pitchers duels

(band rejoins in full)
Still like those old time pitchers duels
Don't need a designated hitter rule
A one to nothing game is really cool
With those old time pitchers duels

Still like those old time pitchers duels
(instrumental jam and fade out)

January 22, 2001: Baseball executives and umpires have been discussing a uniform strike zone. Will this result in the pitchers duels of bygone eras? Bob Seger recorded a song about music in 1977 which, with a few changes, is equally relevant about baseball in 2001.
