We’ve already had two versions of “Straight Outta Kauffman.” There was the Johnny Cueto song, too.

But a local radio station is asking for Royals fans — or anyone else — to write a song that pays tribute to the Royals. On its website, the Bridge (90.9 FM) wrote, they are inviting musicians “to celebrate Kansas City’s race to the fall classic by writing a song that pays tribute to our local baseball team, and we’ll play the best on air!!!”

The contest started Sept. 15.

“We love Kansas City musicians, we love our local teams and we know many of our local musicians love our local teams too!” Sarah Bradshaw of the Bridge wrote in an email. “It just makes sense to find ways to celebrate that.”

There were some ground rules, too. From the Bridge:

1. Brevity is good (so try to keep the song to two min or under)

2. Please adhere to all 1738 rules

3. There aren’t 1738 rules, as that would just be silly

4. .wav files or equivalent

Nice Fetty Wap reference there, wouldn’t you say?

If you have a song in your heart, send a CD to

Baseball on The Bridge

125 E. 31st Street

Kansas City MO 64108

You also can email a digital download to sarah@bridge909.org. The station asks that you use the words “Baseball on the Bridge” as your subject line. The deadline is Oct. 2.
