Bernie and Bruce rock the house

dscf0075.jpgThe good people at posted a report on Bruce Springsteen’s performance at the Safe at Home Gala last night.

Bruce did a cover of “California Sun” with special lyrics for Joe Torre. That was followed by “Working on the Highway” and a special song he wrote about the Yankees that he joked would be on his next record.

“Thunder Road” was next followed by “Bobby Jean” and “Dancing in the Dark.” Bernie Williams than joined Bruce on stage for “Glory Days.”

Bruce is an actual Yankees fan and played baseball as a kid. The E Street Band also had a softball team back in the day. Over the years, I’ve seen him in clubs like the Stone Pony with a Yankees cap on.

It’s a great night when Bruce and baseball come together, especially for a good cause. Too bad he didn’t do “The Ties That Bind” for Jorge Posada and Mariano Rivera.
