Japan’s Byosuke Kikuchi uses Zelda theme song as at-bat music (Video)
If you were wondering which player had the best walk-up music for an at-bat during the World Baseball Classic this year, you can stop now. Byosuke Kikuchi of Japan officially took the cake during his team’s loss to the U.S. in Tuesday night’s semifinal game.
With Japan trailing 2-1 and a runner on second in the eighth inning, Kikuchi strolled to the plate with the “Zelda” theme song playing in the background.

Some of you may be too young to feel a true emotional connection to this, but there are others — maybe myself — who now consider Kikuchi a legend. Just when we thought no one would ever top Josh Reddick, a new champion emerges.
