This Week in Baseball Theme Music
“Hello There, Everybody. This is Mel Allen,” was the opening line that accompanied the theme music each and every week on “This Week in Baseball” during Mel Allen’s tenure as host. (1977-1996). Baseball’s original half-hour highlight show was sandwich by two wonderful theme songs.
The opening theme music was used as the original theme to the game show, Jackpot. Thus, all the Jackpot images in the YouTube video below…
The closing theme is titled “Gathering Crowds” and was composed by John Scott. (A link to the song on iTunes can be found below.) In the video, you’ll hear the entire song accompanied by a variety of baseball images.
