With the exception of a few players and stories, Major League Baseball has not been cool for eons. One exception to the staunch sport’s normally stringent rules and regulations is player walk up music. MLB allows each player to pick songs to walk up to the plate to for each at bat in their home park. These songs give fans a glimpse into player personalities and allow them to exercise creativity that isn’t often scene in America’s favorite pastime.
