Pearl Jam to soundtrack World Series

Listen to Pearl Jam on iHeartRadio

Earlier this year the guys in Pearl Jam proved that their music and baseball make a good team with an epic concert at Chicago's Wrigley Field. 

Now, the band is set to keep the partnership going during this year's World Series. 

According to Billboard, they've agreed to let Fox Sports use 48 Pearl Jam songs while promoting and broadcasting baseball's Fall Classic, which gets under way October 23. 

And as November's Artist of the Month, Pearl Jam's tunes will be spread across all Fox Sport properties throughout the fall. 

Pearl Jam manager Kelly Curtis says the band didn't always like to license their music, but lately they've been looking at it like anything else they do.  If the band members like the idea and feel like their fans will like it too, they're on board.  He adds that the entire group loves baseball, so "this one was a no brainer." 

The collection of songs will cover nearly every album in Pearl Jam's discography, including all 12 tracks from their tenth album Lightning Bolt.  The record is due out this Tuesday.
