Mets players use Beastie Boys songs as at-bat music (Video)
As you have probably heard by now, the music injury lost a legend on Friday with the passing of Adam Yauch. Yauch, who went under the stage name MCA, was a member and founder of the famous hip-hop group the Beastie Boys. He had been battling cancer since 2009.
With their most popular days having come in the 1980s and early 1990s, there are likely a lot of players currently in Major League Baseball who grew up listening to the unique sounds of the Beastie Boys and watching their whacky music videos. As you can see from the video above, the Mets decided to pay tribute to Yauch during their game against the D-Backs on Friday by using Beastie Boys songs as their at-bat music. It was a nice gesture from the team to honor a musician that probably influenced the middle school wardrobe of a Mets player or two.
