June 17 — ANGEL FLYING TOO CLOSE TO THE GROUND, Willie Nelson (1981)

imageIt was during my first trip to Omaha and the CWS, in 1999, that I first noticed this song. If memory serves, it was on the jukebox at a bar called Buffalo Joe’s (RIP), across the street from Rosenblatt Stadium (double RIP), which served as our official CWS headquarters for the first few years.

It has since become my favorite Willie Nelson song, and always comes to mind during the series — usually on the drive home, which was the case today.
