“So, I’m back up in the game, running things to keep my swing, lettin’ all the people know, that I’m back to run the show.” – “Return Of The Mack” by Mark Morrison
There are many walk-up songs in baseball that make a lot of literal sense for a baseball player to have — the above example being Twins’ Chris Colabello’s choice. Others, however, sort of come out of left field. Pun intended.READ MORE: At Least 2 Dead In Head-On Crash Near Lake Mille Lacs
But whether they make sense or not, some of our Twins players have some pretty great walkup jams. We’ve collected the Top 5 best walkup songs for 2014 Twins players (with a runner-up). You can also let us know what you think in the poll at the bottom of the page.
No. 1: Chris Colabello
– “Return Of The Mack” by Mark Morrison
I mean, this one is pretty self-explanatory, but having the line “Return of the Mack” repeating while you walk up to knock some runs in? That’s cool. It’s a great use of this one-hit wonder.
No. 2: Jason Kubel
– “Sabotage” by Beastie Boys
Nothing pumps things up more than the musical energy of the Beastie Boys. Well, nothing I can think of.
No. 3: Trevor Plouffe
– “Travelling Riverside Blues” by Led ZeppelinREAD MORE: Parents Demand More Distance Learning Options As COVID Cases Rise Ahead Of School Year
You have to respect a young baseball player who jams to some classic rock — and it’s a good choice, too.
No. 4: Kurt Suzuki
– “My Audio” by J-Boog
Switching things up a bit, Suzuki picked some reggae pop for his walk-up song, and it’s a catchy tune.
No. 5: Chris Parmalee
– Cinema by Benny Benassi (Skrillex Remix).
Drop the bass, then drop a homer!
Runner-Up: Joe Mauer
– “What You Know” by T.I.
Mauer’s makes this list — not simply because he’s Mauer — but because he’s stuck with this T.I. classic for the long haul. It’s the whole “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” thing.MORE NEWS: Drought To Have Lasting Impact On Minnesota's Christmas Tree Farms
