Over the last fifteen years or so, baseball has added "walk up" music, personally selected by the home team batter to inspire them as they face a 95 MPH fastball. Some are amusing. Yoenis Cespedes uses the Lion King theme. Lucas Duda uses Jimi Hendrix' All Along the Watchtower, appropriate for this 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love. The rest is pretty forgettable. I cringe at thinking what Ty Cobb or Dixie Walker would have selected.

on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
