Baseball question

Y'all know that I love baseball. But something confuses me. During games, the hapless "musicians" in the employ of stadiums often play the goddamn theme to The Adams Family. Why, fer hevvin's sake?

What brings this to a boil is that I watched a few Australian games this pre-season -- and they played the goddamn theme to The Adams Family, too! What is this about?

Years ago I told myself, "Well, I guess there are little kids in the stands." But of course, this show is from long, long ago. The kids wouldn't even recognize the tune. Adding to the mystery, stadiums also play the theme from Green Acres. Green Acres?! A terrible show from about 50 years ago? What gives?
