Chin music?

Posted by JB on February 15, 2003

I've heard this said by announcers in American baseball when a pitch is thrown very close to the batter to 'brush' him back from crowding homeplate. Does anyone know the origin of this phrase? I understand the idea of throwing the ball in the vicinity of the chin, but why 'music'?
