Josh Reddick is now walking up to Wham!'s 'Careless Whisper'

Certain walk-up songs are iconic. Mariano Rivera came up to the mound to "Enter Sandman" for fourteen years, and it became as much a part of his lore as his wicked cutter. We can only hope that Josh Reddick's new walk-up song will prove similarly lasting. Years from now, fans across the country will think of the A's outfielder and immediately start grooving to the smooth sax solo from Wham!'s "Careless Whisper."

A's reliever Sean Doolittle is getting into it:
