Lenny Randle’s “King Dome” -Dutch Baseball Hangout – MLB Sports

In today’s “Baseball Song” episode, we’ll focus on the real funky disco stimper. How much baseball do you want? A song about a stadium sung by a former MLB player. The man was literally a Journeyman who became famous for his special play when he played for the Mariners at the King Dome in Seattle.

The player we’re talking about is Lenny Randle, who was kind enough to allow a Dutch baseball hangout. interview Returned to 2017. He played for the Washington Senators, Texas Rangers, New York Mets, New York Yankees, Chicago Cubs, and Seattle Mariners. After the 1982 season, Randall went to Italy and joined Nettuno. During his mission in Nettuno, he won the Italian Serie A batting title with an average of .477.

It was the only time in his career that Lenny Randle blew it away.

Lenny’s famous play was during a match against the Kansas City Royals on May 27, 1981. Royals center fielder Amos Otis hit a slow roller with third baseman in the sixth inning. Randall got on his hands and knees and blew the ball well. “The Royals protested the game, after which Randall said the” blow ban rule “was enforced. He jokingly said, “They won the game, we won the protest.”

But then to today’s song. During a player strike in 1981, Randall went to a recording studio to record a song in honor of the Seattle Mariners’ first home, the Kingdome.
In this typical disco stimper, there was also the effect of rap.

In 2014, this song was part of a compilation album named “”.Wheedles Groove: Seattle Funk, Modern Soul & Boogie, Volume II, 1972-1987.. Thanks to this album, this song has become a big hit.

Randall didn’t hit the recording studio alone. He gathered a group of ball players who acted as background vocals: Larry Andersen, Alcowens, and Julio and Todd Cruz. By the way, Jerome is guitarist Jerome Andrews, who has finely chopped a nice solo at this point in the song.

I have to warn you: this song is tied together with repetition. 😉

“LyricsKing Dome” As follows:

Short instrumental intro

King dome, called king dome
King dome, called king dome
King dome, called king dome
King dome, called king dome
King Dome, do King Dome
King dome, called king dome

There is a dance around Seattle
And it’s moving across the land
All people are doing it
They are doing it in Iran

It’s called King Dome, King Dome
King dome, called king dome
King dome, called king dome

Raise your hand in the air
And you make them like an arc
You can do it at home
You can do it in the dark

It’s called King Dome, King Dome
King dome, called king dome
King dome, called king dome

Now when you are in the king
You need to check Astroturf
Check out the turf now
That’s Astroturf!

You’re running first, so you’re running first
And towards the second, towards the second
And you go third, go third
And you’re heading home, heading home
You have to break, you have to break
Then run Kingdome.

King dome, called king dome
King dome, called king dome
King Dome, do King Dome
King dome, called king dome

Wow, wow
Wow, wow
King dome, called king dome
They are called King Dome, King Dome, King Dome, King Dome.
They are called King Dome, King Dome, King Dome, King Dome.
King dome, called king dome

Raise your hand in the air
And you make them like an arc
You can do it at home,
You can do it in the dark

Let’s call it King Dome, King Dome
King dome, called king dome

You can do it at home, do it at home
And never alone

Jerome

King dome, called king dome
Check the turf now, check the turf
When you are running first, you are running first, you are running first

And you go third, go third

You have to break, you have to break
And what do you do?King Dome

You’re running first, so you’re running first
And towards the second, towards the second
And you are crawling third, crawling third
And you are sneaking up on the house, sneaking up on the house
You have to break, you have to break
