Anything so innocent and built like that just gotta be named Lucille.

They played "Walk the Dinosaur" whenever Kent Hrbek got walked. That made me laugh. 'Cuz he was big and old.

Alright paps, if you don't want "philadelphia freedom", how about bruce's "streets of philadelphia"?

I'd love to hear some player walking in to "Baby, Don't You Wanna Man Like Me?"

Mike Napoli once lost a bet on the NBA Finals and had to walk out to "Man I Feel Like A Woman" by Shania Twain.

Anyway, I thought it would be awesome this year if Yu Darvish would pick "Crank That" by Soulja Boy just for the big "YUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU" at the start

Nancy Faust is awesome. She *was* Comiskey Park when I was a kid.

/miss actual organ music

My favorite was when the White Sox music director played Whitesnake's "Here I Go Again" for Chuck Finley. If the White Sox's owner had any cojones, they would have bought the director a beer instead of firing him

So, FARK, what would your walk on music be? Since they don't have organ players at beer league softball games...

A few years back the Peoria Chiefs' closer (I think) entered games to the RBI Baseball theme. That's gotta be way up there.

I think I might walk up to the Escape (Pina Colada) song just so somebody could make the obligatory joke.

I think Fark threads need walk-up music.

Oh man, speaking of sports with walk up music, a good song to walk up to in Beer League Softball would be the Dude Love theme song.

Sorry, Carmina Burana is already spoken for.

Cut me off there...

Chase Utley still has the baddest walkup music of any batter. Except for Mike Meyers.

Chase Utley = Link (new window)

Mike Meyers (Chicago White Sox relief pitcher) = Link (new window)

The University of Arkansas had a a guy named Hode (pronounced Hoe-dee). Thus when he came up, they played the Minnie the Moocher scene from "The Blues Brothers" on the video screen.

They had a gu,y last named Monk. The Beastie Boys "Brass Monkey" was his walk up.

They do so good sometimes.

Currently, there is a relief pitcher from Kokomo, Indiana on the roster. Why the hell they don't use the obvious as his music intro is beyond me.
