Did Pesky Hold the Ball?

by Phil Coley

The song is all about the life of the beloved Johnny Pesky. It answers the ultimate question: Did Pesky hold the ball? The music is uplifting, bouncy, and fun. The song lyrics ring true because of my interview with Johnny and his son David.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Johnny Pesky is widely known as Mr. Red Sox but he deserves the title Mr. Baseball because of his dedication to the game of baseball. Although one play way back in the 1946 World Series still gets retold today with the question Did Pesky hold the ball or not? The song: Did Pesky hold the ball answers a much larger question. The words are recited and sung with great feeling by Artist Phil Coley. Interviewing Johnny Pesky and his son David was more than a special delight. Both spoke of his 70 year career in pro ball and his many travels from player to numerous baseball positions. After all these years he remains in uniform. Perhaps one of the most touching part of the interview came when the beloved Johnny asked me why write a song about me? I simply said to him, Johnny you're Johnny Pesky!!

Here is a two line introduction to the song: Did Pesky Hold the Ball?

A Home Run Off the Pesky Pole!
Written with love, the Pesky song is a tribute as Johnny is defended as blameless and a hero by baseball song writer Joe Pickering, who knew and always admired the Red Sox infield great. They both lived in Lynn, Ma for many seasons.
Cleverly written, the song is catchy and filled with wonderful history that is as poetic as a Pesky to Doerr to York double play.
