While there are a seemingly unlimited number of ways to experience the game of baseball through social media from the comfort of your own home, there are a few things that you can only truly get by attending a game. One of these, is the walk-up music chosen by the players of the home team. I’ve recently been exposed to the fact that many of the walk-up songs for specific players are available online on each team’s respective site. This is fantastic news for those of us who aren’t so lucky as to visit every MLB park and hear each player’s music. Here at CFB I’m gonna take a look at some of the highlights of this rather awful collection of music that MLB players have decided represent them/pump them up/introduce them best.
(You can find the collection of music by going to a team’s website and looking under the “FANS” tab for a section called “Ballpark Music” or something similar to it.)
Second team I’ve found after the MarLOLins that doesn’t list their walk-up music on the official website. I assume I’d just post whatever Jose Altuve’s was a million times, so I don’t think we’re missing out on much.
Los Angeles Angels:
Born in Jacksonville, and the owner of an incredibly heavy southern accent, Howie Kendrick is clearly just pandering to the locals to show his Cali loyalty.
“Eight Second Ride” also refers to Downs’ 2003 season. He started one game, in which he gave up 5 runs over three innings. That was it.
“I never forgot about Dre. Not even once. And that’s why I deserve this job.”
*cut to Balfour on the Extreme level of Guitar Hero III*
THAT IS AN ACTUAL PROFESSIONAL BASEBALL PLAYER.
Oh man, this one is too good. The same day I found this, Jeff Sullivan came out with this brilliant piece of analysis.
hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha wait no i like the Mariners :(
I was completely unaware there was an alternate version of this song, but I’m glad Ogando is the one using it.
Uh oh Chad Tracy, looks like you’re not the only bearded left-handed first baseman who needs a T-shirt.
