Songs You Hear The Most At The MLB BallParks

I saw a ton of MLB games 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.
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)
