Rangers catcher Mike Napoli went 0-for-4 Tuesday in a win over the Orioles. Even though he’s always been a hitter with a low batting average, his struggles that night may be attributed to a change in his at-bat music.
SI Hot Clicks informed us that Napoli lost a bet to FOX Sports Southwest reporter Emily Jones over the NBA Finals. She picked the Mavs to beat the Heat and the payoff was choosing Napoli’s at-bat music for the game.
Want to know her songs of choice? Shania Twain’s I Feel Like A Woman, Culture Club’s Do You Really Want To Hurt Me and Right Said Fred’s I’m Too Sexy. We have some grainy YouTube footage of the at-bats but you can’t hear the music too well.
That was a pretty good bet, but when it comes to at-bat music, this is still my all-time favorite story.
Also, you may think that’s the end of Napoli’s bet payoffs, but that’s not the case. He actually has to dye his hair like Dirk Nowitzki’s for a week after losing a bet with the Rangers’ clubhouse attendants. Nice going Nap!Google+
