Please recommend good songs for a kids baseball video.

For each Little League season, my wife makes a video for the team. Depending on the amount of footage she has, she'll make one video of defensive plays and one for offense. Our problem is that we are running out of songs. Can you suggest songs appropriate for a team of 8 year old ball players?

The song doesn't have to be baseball oriented, but it should be upbeat, and not overtly sexual. Cussing beyond "damn" or "hell" is right out. A recent song that the boys would know is a bonus, but it's more about the feel of the song than the vintage.
Some songs that she has used in the past are:
Centerfield -- John Fogarty
Pump It Up -- Elvis Costello
Already Gone -- Eagles
Let's See How Far We've Come -- Matchbox 20
Unbelievable -- EMF
Walk of Life -- Dire Straits
Roll to me -- Del Amitri
Freeze Frame -- J. Geils Band
All Star -- Smash Mouth
I've suggested "Beat On the Brat" for several seasons, but, for some reason, she has demurred.
