    Walk-up or warm-up music

    What songs do you think you'd like to have played as you are walking up to the batter's box or warming up between innings?

    I always thought that "I Stand Alone" by Godsmack was an awesome idea for a closer.

    Your ideas? Please feel free to leave clips!

    "The one constant through all the years has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It's been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt, and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game, is a part of our past. It reminds us of all that once was good, and what could be again." - James Earl Jones in Field of Dreams

    I came in to "Once" by Pearl Jam when I closed in HS and College.

    If I was still playing, here are some ones I'd consider;

    "The Game" Motorhead

    "Down" Stone Temple Pilots

    "One Night Only" Saliva

    "My time is Now" John Cena (yeah, yeah, I know but it would work for a closer)

    "Sucker Train Blues" Velvet Revolver

    There are too many voices in my head as it is.

    But really, it would be something from Three Days Grace or Fuel.

    If I was a Major League Closer, I would have the PA man play the theme song to the movie "John Carpenter's Halloween" while running in from the Bullpen between Innings. Totally rad

    No doubt.
    Ironically her guitarist was Andrew Gold, who also has a song of his own for me

    Used AC/DC's "Big Gun" one year in college. It was pretty well recieved.

    Another year I used a Reggaeton song that our SS used the year before. Can't remember what it was, but I got alot of strange looks from pitchers

    I thought one ML hurler named one of his pitches this

    This could apply to getting chosen to play

    My chances of getting to play

    Other players say this about me

    Couldn't find a video for it, but "Somewhere Out There" (in left field) would also apply to me. Her co-singer went to high school about ten miles from me

    When I was in college I always used the opening bars of Tool's "Sober".

    It usually would get to about 15 seconds or so before they'd stop it.

    I think if I came into the game I'd want 'Look What The Cat Dragged In' by Poison, but just because I'm a Poison fan. that song gets me going.

    I'm too old for the rock and roll anymore, but HOT WATER MUSIC bring the rock.

    I'm pretty certain that Hot Water Music - Position would make a stellar entrance song, unfortunately there's only ghetto-live versions on the youtube.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LHGF1SGSLzY

    It's one of my fav songs, and the live versions really muffles the layering of the instruments...

    Any song that brings the rock with 4 Bearded Floridians screaming "PREPARE YOURSELF" should be someones intro music.

    If I was a major league closer, I'd come in to "Babba O'Riley" by The Who.
