The walk-out song is of great importance to anyone looking to send a message on the baseball diamond. It announces your presence, strikes fear in the heart of your opponent, or maybe it’s just a rite of passage choice handed down from seniors to freshmen.
But when the opening tones of John Carpenter’s “Halloween Theme” reverberated in the acoustical divot where Swayze Field resides, fans knew Mike Mayers was about to unload six or seven innings of terror onto whoever stood in the batter’s box facing him.
Or when the opening chords of “Pour Some Sugar On Me” echoed into the well lubricated ear drums of the right field student section, it was time to get your eyes onto the bat of Sikes Orvis and await a dick-slapped dinger and subsequent beer shower.
With that said, our Friday question was about what your walk out song would be, and now it’s the Red Cup staff taking our turn at the annual question. There are some truly weird choices here according to me, a dad.
