Here are the official (and by official, I mean of course my own) rankings of the 2016 Boston Red Sox walk-up music.

Walk-up music is a very important part of a hitter’s at-bat. It serves two purposes – it needs to get the batter in the zone while also allowing the fan to gain some insight into the player’s personality. With that in mind, it definitely needs a beat – something that the crowd can get into. I often think of what my walk-up song would be if I were in the MLB (I’ll share that at the conclusion of this blog).

The songs listed below are from the official Red Sox websiteThese are the songs the players walk-up to as of the publishing of this blog. They are ranked from worst to first. 

Rusney Castillo – ‘O La Gozadera’ – Gente De Zona


Christian Vasquez – ‘Fronteamos Porque Podemos’ – De La Ghetto


Brock Holt – ‘Dance Her Home’ – Cody Johnson


Jackie Bradley Jr – ‘Pass Out’ – Tinie Tempah


Xander Bogaerts – ‘Light It Up (Remix)’ – Major Lazer


Hanley Ramirez – ‘Down In The DM’ – Yo Gotti


Dustin Pedroia – ‘Already Home’ – Jay Z ft. Kid Cudi


David Ortiz – ‘Sigo Arriba’ – Jay the Prince ft. Jose Reyes


Chris Young – ‘$ave Dat Money’ – Lil Dicky


Ryan Hannigan – ‘Ni**As In Paris’ – Jay Z & Kanye West


Travis Shaw – ‘Talk That Talk’ – Rihanna ft. Jay Z


Mookie Betts – ‘Wet Dreamz’ – J. Cole


As promised – here is the song that I would choose to walk-up to the plate with if I were in the big leagues. This was mostly based on my mood at the time I’m writing this, but you can’t go wrong with this classic.
