Songs You Hear The Most At The MLB BallParks

Who can forget Neil Diamond singing Sweet Caroline at Fenway Park right after the Boston Marathon bombing?

I saw a ton of MLB games live last year.  224 to be exact.  I spent a lot of time listening to music at the park before and after the game.

I was also fed a steady dose of ‘Uptown Funk’ by Bruno Mars, ‘Shake It Off’ by Taylor Swift, and if I hear “Shut up and Dance with me” one more time by Walk the Moon, I am just going to snap.

Baltimore played the best music at the yard hands down.  They were huge into Silento’s Whip, Nae-Nae, but also one can’t not love the “Thank God I’m a country boy” (which I have seen played numerous times at Kauffman Stadium as well.”

During several games at Camden Yards they also played “(Apache – Jump On it”) by Sugarhill Gang, and this little number is played every where.

I started to think of the most common played tunes at the park.

Rob Base’s and EZ Rock’s “It Takes Two” is routinely played at baseball venue’s after a doubleplay.  Michael Jackson’s “Wanna be Starting Something” seems to find its way onto the audio deck when a rally is started.

I heard the 7th inning stretch more times than I would like to recall in 2016, however at Wrigley Field it always means more because of Harry Caray's singing years ago.

Of course every park loves to play the Law and Order Theme when the umpires are announced for the games.

Also love to hear “centerfield’ by John Fogarty any day of the week.  It reminds me of Bull Durham every time.

Love that a lot of clubs also play “hit the road Jack” by Ray Charles when the other teams starting pitcher is yanked out of the game.  If you have any other song to add, let me know.

Everybody Clap Your Hands (at 2:30 mark, all clubs play this rift)

It Takes Two

Walking On A Sunshine (when a walk is given out)

Jump On It

Wanna Be Starting Something (hit to start a rally)

Hit the road jack (starting pitcher on the opposition is yanked out of the game)

About chuckbooth3023

I played competitive baseball until 18 years old and had offers to play NCAA Division 1 University Baseball at Liberty University. Post-concussion symptoms from previous football and baseball head injuries forced me to retire by age 19. After two nearly made World Record Attempts in 2008, I set a New World Record by visiting all 30 MLB Parks (from 1st to last pitch) in only 24 Calendar Days in the summer 0f 2009. In April of 2012, I established yet another new GWR by visiting all 30 Parks in only 23 Calendar Days! You can see the full schedule at the page of the www.mlbreports.com/gwr-tracker . In 2015, I watched 224 MLB Games, spanning all 30 MLB Parks in 183 Days. Read about that World Record Journey at https://mlbreports.com/183in2015/229sked2015/
