Start with “the One That You Love” by Air Supply (I mean, finally, right?). Then the beginning of “While You See a Chance” by Steve Winwood. Wrapped up with “On Our Way to Fall” by Yo La Tengo. The ball game is a clip from Nolan Ryan’s 5th no hitter. So, no, not a white sox game. But from 1981.

A version of this story was originally commissioned for an exhibit at the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art in 2009. (Note, if you have a museum and want some audio that isn’t super boring, drop me a line).
