Major League Baseball today announced that the MLB Remix powered by SoundCloud national contest is now available for fans to submit their creative remake of baseball’s most popular song, “Take Me Out to the Ballgame.” Fans will have the opportunity to showcase their musical talent and put their own personal flair on the classic anthem.
The entries, which can be submitted starting today, will be evaluated by a Rock & Roll Hall of Fame committee with submissions judged on creativity, instrumentation, and performance. The deadline for entries is Thursday, June 13 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern.
The winner receives a trip to the 2019 MLB All-Star Game presented by Mastercard in Cleveland and all the festivities that week including the T-Mobile Home Run Derby, SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game, and MLB All-Star Celebrity Softball Game. Additionally, they will have the opportunity to showcase their talents and perform their rendition of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” on stage at PLAY BALL PARK.
