Baseball scribe Peter Gammons will release his first album, "Never Slow Down, Never Grow Old," July 4 via Rounder Records. In addition to a host of originals, the set finds Gammon singing and playing guitar on covers of Warren Zevon's "Model Citizen" and the Clash's "Death or Glory."

Gammons is joined on the project by George Thorogood and such Boston music scene notables as Juliana Hatfield and former Letters To Cleo vocalist Kay Hanley, as well as Boston Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein and major-leaguers like Bronson Arroyo, Trot Nixon, Tim Wakefield and Jonathan Papelbon.

Proceeds from the album will benefit the Foundation To Be Named Later, which raises funds for disadvantaged youngsters.
