Paul Simon to Perform at National Baseball Hall of Fame's 75th Anniversary Concert 

PaulSimon.comAs part of Simon & Garfunkel, Paul Simon once sang "Where have you gone/Joe DiMaggio?"  He'll be communing with the late, great ball player's spirit on August 2, when he travels to Cooperstown, New York to play at a concert celebrating the National Baseball Hall of Fame & Museum's 75th Anniversary.

At the concert, which will pay tribute to baseball through music, film and video, Simon is scheduled to perform three songs.  No doubt one of them will be "Mrs. Robinson," the song that contains that famous Joe DiMaggio line; back in 2006, he donated a copy of the song to the Hall of Fame's library.

Others on the bill for the concerts include musician and former New York Yankee Bernie Williams, as well as the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra. More stars will be announced in the coming weeks.

Simon is currently on tour with Sting; the two musicians will wrap up their joint trek March 16 in Orlando.
