Great Walk-Up Rock Songs in Baseball
As every sports fan enthusiast is well aware, whenever we’re watching a Baseball game, the music playing during the game is undeniably an integral part of the show. There are a lot of musics dedicated to this sport and we’d like to quote some of the most emblematic out there: ‘Take Me Out To The Ballgame’ (Jack Norworth) ; ‘Centerfield’ (John Fogerty) ; ‘Glory Days’ (Bruce Springsteen) ; ‘All The Way’ (Eddie Vedder) ; ‘Catfish’ (Bob Dylan) among others.
But the walk-up songs are the best songs! They are everything for the players. Whatever the reason, most stadiums feature a players song as they appear for their at bat or while warming up on the mound. Walk-up song is the moment when the player express what kind of player he is. Some of them use the same song for a lifetime, while others choose several during their careers. The range goes from country to heavy metal, preferential without women singing it!
For our list we chose rock music – there are such good songs from different musical styles, it’s true – but nothing motivates a person like a good rock music! At the beginning of the championship Boston Red Sox fans thought in the re-validation of the title, and according to the experts on allpro.eu, there is a high possibility for this to happen. But in this game they fight up to the end, and teams like the New York Yankees, Detroit Tigers, St. Louis Cardinals and San Francisco Giants will not give it up easily.
