Music video by John Fogerty performing Centerfield.

"Centerfield" is the title track from John Fogerty's album Centerfield, Fogerty's first solo album after a nine-year hiatus.

Originally the b-side of the album's second single, "Rock And Roll Girls" (#16 US, Spring 1985), the song is now commonly played at baseball games across the United States. Along with "Take Me Out To The Ball Game," it is one of the best-known baseball songs." In 2010, Fogerty became the only musician to be celebrated at the Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony when "Centerfield" was honored by the National Baseball Hall of Fame.

Fogerty took approximately 10 years off from recording after leaving Creedence Clearwater Revival and releasing two solo albums. For his comeback album, he chose “Centerfield” as the name of the album before he wrote the song. Fogerty said the song was easy to write "I was practicing a song, and I came up with that guitar riff that starts the song," he said. "I went into the studio, playing the guitar with a drumbeat and it just came out." The song combines two of Fogerty's passions, baseball and rock & roll, and he was nervous about its reception. "Over the years it seemed like sports songs just didn't qualify into the rock-and-roll lexicon," Fogerty said. "There was that unwritten distinction. It was never considered rock-and-roll."

"Centerfield" reached No. 44 in the US Hot 100. Since it became available digitally in the 21st century, it has sold 734,000 downloads in US.
