Whenever I go to a baseball game with one of my friends, (which will be a lot harder now that I live in Or. And he lives in IL) we discuss music. Specifically what music would you walk up to, great HR music, and entering from the bullpen music.
This is not really a new topic, I have been coming to VEB since 06 and it has come up many times. I thought that given the topics and threads the last few days maybe we needed a light hearted discussion.
My questions are three fold
1. What would your batting music be?
2. If you were a reliever what would you run into
3. Name your favorite Cardinal player music, or ball park music you enjoyed.
My batting music would be a difficult choice, something peppy maybe seldom used to get the crowd into it. I am not sure other players pay attention to it per say so not sure intimidating music is important. Eye of the Tiger or just the Rocky Theme would be my batting choice.
Now if I were coming in from the pen, I'd like to hear Shake it up by the cars. I'm not quite sure why, but I always thought it would be a good run in tune.
My favorite cards tunes were when Walker had Crazy Train played and Big Mac Welcome to the Jungle. During the chase nothing got me more excited than Big Mac batting as Axel screeched. Sometimes I would be disappointed by the result, but the moments leading up to it were great.
I also wanted to mention when I lived in Texas when a Ranger would HR they would play the theme from The Natural as fireworks blasted, always thought that was a neat thing that made the trot, their own.
Have fun with this, there is no wrong answer
