Baseball music


Let's play a game.

Hypothetical situation. Well, two of them, actually.

1. You're a Major League hitter. What song do you come out to in your home park?

2. You're a Major League closer. What song do you enter to?

We look forward to your answers in the comments.

Batting - Ric Flair's entrance music

Pitching - Bulls on Parade, bad ass

Bulls on Parade, that's a great closer song.

Let's see......

Hitting- Nuthin But A G Thang

Closer Song- Hells Bells. Too easy I know, but it's too great of a song.

Since most of you aren't over 30 and/or didn't grow up in NYC, the Magic Garden may be lost on you.

Batting - Rubber Duckie by Ernie

This one you must know.

If I got flak from the club, after I went Manny/Chacon on the club rep, I'd have them play Fistful of Steel by Rage Against the Machine.

Wow, my first thought for my closing music would be "Roll with the Changes." And as cool as that would be, I believe I have one better ... Iron Maiden's "Fear of the Dark," especially if the crowd did the chant. That would be pretty intimidating.

Another good one would be "Jesus Christ Superstar." Or maybe Common Sense' version of "Hey Joe."

I think in either case I'd go with this:
