If you walk into any baseball clubhouse or locker room at any level — professional, college or even high school — there’s a good chance music will be blasting out of someone’s speakers. It could be country, rock, hip-hop and rap, R&B, reggae or Latin music.
The same can be said as teams go through their pre-game workouts or players walk up to the plate or out of the bullpen.
Each week we’ll take a look at how music influences each player’s game.
Who plays the best music? I think it’s kind of a mixed group. Everyone’s playing a little bit of everything, Mason (Williams) and Wilkin (Castillo) have some pretty good tunes that come on. I’d say two guys.
What’s your pregame playlist? A little bit of everything. I’d say country. I’d say a little bit of all of it.
What’s your walk-up song? It’s the same thing I used last year. It’s Nelly. “E.I.” is the name of the song. Really, to be honest with you, not this past offseason, but the one before, I was just driving down the road and it came on my Pandora station. I was thinking about it, and you know how we do, most of the guys think about it all offseason. I wanted something that was going to get the crowd up and going a little bit.
