Your 2014 Brewers Walk-Up & Entrance Music

If you were at any of the Exhibition Games this weekend, along with taking in the new changes around the ballpark, you might have found yourself taking in some new music as well, especially as our players walked up to the plate, or our pitchers entered the games.

For players, this is often an important decision. What brief part of a song is going to send a message to the fans—and what do I want that message to be? Do I keep the same song that I had last year? What’s the hit that is going to produce the most hits? Is it a superstitious thing, do I want fans to sing along, or do I just use my favorite song right now?

And, it’s a big deal because sometimes, fans might not remember your exact career batting average or ERA with the team, but they just might remember your at-bat song.

Take these blasts from the past, for instance, which were very distinctive and will probably always stick out–in my mind, at least–as being associated with a certain player at a certain time: Tyler Houston using Baha Men’s “Who Let the Dogs Out” (2001);  Frank Catalanotto and Mark Kotsay using The Outfield’s “Your Love” (2009; 2011—“Josie’s on a vacation far away….”); or Brooks Kieschnick entering the game to George Strait’s “Cowboys Like Us” (2004).

So, if you’re like me and you’re attuned to the tunes, you’ll probably enjoy seeing this list—and updating your iPod playlists accordingly.

I always liked when Mark Kotsay used “Your Love” by The Outfield and everyone would sing along. So great!

The best ever walk up music for a Brewer was Yuni’s Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch.

I would go with Kotsay’s use of “Your Love”. There was a memorable moment during game 2 of the NLDS in 2011 where there was some sort of TV timeout when his music started playing. The crowd started to sing along. Nearly everyone was into it. Then Kotsay got a key pinch hit.
