Okay. NOW we’re back.
One of the most amazing parts of a baseball game is the first few strums of guitar, the beat of a drum, or the notes of a synthetic, auto-tuned voice that echoes throughout Oxford-University Stadium at Swayze Field, announcing the incoming presence of a student-athlete.
Of course, we are talking about the walk-up song.
It’s an announcement that a king has arrived to claim what is rightfully his. A declaration that all your current assets are about to be engulfed in the fiery flames of a 98 miles per hour fastball. A signaling beacon of future joy, happiness and elation while causing a trembling in your most hated foe’s knees.
OK, it’s all those things, and it’s also an easy sound device to remember the line-up when you’re 12 Natty Lights deep in a blow out game against Arkansas-Pine Bluff in March.
The 2020 Ole Miss Baseball walkout songs is a cornucopia of chart-topping hits, deep cuts, classic records, and bangers that is honestly tailor-made for the entire family.

Thank god Grayson and Christoph are a part of this web site because our staff is getting old and also maybe hearing impaired. These are some truly questionable choices across the board, so maybe some of these folks are self-hazing if that is a thing.
