John FogertyRocker John Fogerty's 1985 baseball anthem "Centerfield" is to be inducted into the sport's Hall of Fame.

The former Creedence Clearwater Revival frontman will perform the song at the 2010 induction festivities held at the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York in July; when he'll also donate his custom-made, baseball bat-shaped guitar for display in the sports museum.

Fogerty tells Billboard.com, "I'm a guy who's grown up loving baseball and loving the whole tradition, and of course I've been to Cooperstown a couple times. It's just fascinating for me to be a participant now.
