Daniel Bard has turned out to be a fairly solid starting pitcher for the Red Sox this season, but he shows off another skill set on the soon-to-be released collection "Fenway Park Greatest Hits" that commemorates the park's 100th anniversary.

Bard is one of several current and former Red Sox who appear in a variety of roles alongside professional musicians on the album. Bard plays acoustic guitar on the song "Let the Good Times Roll," made famous by the band The Cars, which got its start in Boston. Former Van Halen and current Extreme singer Gary Cherone and Extreme singer and guitarist Nuno Bettencourt also perform with Bard.

The album is on sale at the Yawkey Way Store right now and on redsox.com, and hits other retailers, including iTunes, on May 22. The Bard song is available now on iTunes.
