Detroit Tigers: Here's how they're introduced at the ballpark

There are three things that I follow with a passion: baseball, movies and rock & roll. So it's no surprise that I think one of the most memorable scenes in Major League (a hugely under-rated baseball movie), is the one wherein Charlie Sheen's character, relief pitcher Rick Vaughn, is called in from the bullpen to the X version of Wild Thing . [Warning: Language not office-safe!]:

Well, since then, a lot of ballclubs have encouraged the players to choose their own "theme music." And the World Series-bound Detroit Tigers are no different:

  • Center fielder Curtis Granderson likes 2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted from Tupac Shakur.
  • First baseman Sean Casey prefers Even Flow (Pearl Jam).
  • Relievers Jason Grilli and Jamie Walker prefer (respectively) Welcome to the Jungle by Guns N' Roses and Deep Purple's Smoke On The Water.
  • But my favorite is Joel Zumaya (another reliever!) who likes the park sound system to crank it up with Hendrix's Voodoo Chile.
Bill McGraw has the whole list.
