Playing baseball for a living is definitively one of the coolest jobs in existence. You play baseball! For a living! Sure, there’s looming career uncertainty if you’re anything less than a superstar, and you can literally break your whole body with one tiny incorrect movement, but c’mon. Baseball!

And what is the coolest part of this cool job? Walk-up music. How will you make an impression on the opposing team, on your hometown fans? What song, played at full volume through a colossal stadium sound system, says, “What’s up, everyone? I’m here to sock some dingers.”

We hit the field with the Toronto Blue Jays to learn about their walk-up selections. Featured players include Ricky Romero, Adam Lind, Brett Cecil, Rajai Davis, Jason Frasor, Omar Visquel, Jeff Mathis, and Mike McCoy. And everyone making fun of Jose Bautista for having the cheesiest tunes.
