High and Tight: Our Rock & Roll Baseball Experts Sound Off

From Babe Ruth’s one-man brothel soirees to Dock Ellis’s LSD-assisted no-hitter, there’s always been something undeniably "rock & roll" lurking beneath baseball’s strait-laced surface. With Rolling Stone's High and Tight, we take a weekly look at the game – its history, its characters and its latest news – through the rock & roll lens, with help from our expert panel of musically inclined seamheads. Guaranteed to be more entertaining than a date with Bud Selig, or your money back! Scroll through to meet our rock & roll baseball experts.
