Okay. NOW we’re officially 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. And this post hits ESPECIALLY hard after last year’s season was unfortunately cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The 2021 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.
