MLB Wants Games To Be Faster

So they have a new plan. Make the games shorter by limiting the batters’ “walkup music”. What’s “walkup music” It’s the music the players’ request when they either come up to bat, or pitchers want to be played when they enter the game.

You might know I’m the music DJ for the Grand Rapids Griffins. And hockey players have songs too. They just request songs when they score or fight. This story in the Elkart Truth “MLB decides to cut length of introduction music”

“There’s a website dedicated to Major League Baseball walk-up music called Designated Hits.

We know that “Enter Sandman” by Metallica was associated with Mariano Rivera.
Jake Peavy has used Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Sweet Home Alabama.”
Justin Masterson has entered to “Bingo” by Still Trill Christians.
I recall Nolan Ryan coming in to “Texas Twister” by Little Feat.
Bob Marley’s “Three Little Birds” has been tied to Shane Victorino.

Now, Major League Baseball has decided to keep walk-up songs to 15 seconds in an attempt to speed up games. That means that “Three Little Birds” gets clipped and Victorino is not happy about it. If it were me, I might use B.B. King’s “Let The Good Times Roll.”

My song would obviously be, The Hustle.

What would your song be?
