A recent blog entry I came across from Steady Burn, via Yardbarker, contains some interesting information about baseball players’ walk-up and warm-up songs (songs playing when hitters stroll to the plate and pitchers warm up on the mound). The issue of at-bat music came up earlier in the season when we revealed that Marlins youngster Cameron Maybin selected Miley Cyrus as his tune. Steady Burn’s post mostly has information about Red Sox players, and I must say several of the players have songs that are questionable at best. One that I found particularly hilarious was the song Dice K gets loose to — “My Time” by Fabolous. I wonder if he used to bump Fabolous in Japan when he was pitching for the Seibu Lions.
Anyhow, I can only pray that the song Derek Jeter walks to the plate listening to is the result of some sort of dare that he lost. The Sox players’ songs are pretty bad, but I expect that from most of them. But Derek Jeter? Major League Baseball’s Tom Brady? Major League Baseball’s Dwyane Wade? Major League Baseball’s….sorry I’ll get back to you later with an NHL comparison. Here’s the song that Derek Jeter walks up to the plate with at Yankee Stadium, courtesy of YouTube via Steady Burn.
