Mike Trout, Nolan Arenado, and other MLB stars have some fantastic walk-up songs this year
Deciding which song to use as your musical introduction must be one of the toughest aesthetic decisions a baseball player has to make. So many choices, so many songs, so many specific emotions or memories attached to them -- or, simply, so many options for amusing musical accompaniment during the stride from the on-deck circle to home plate.
Despite the challenge of selecting the perfect song, several key players shared some of their choices for the new season.
Travis Scott! Kendrick Lamar! Meek Mill! This is far better than the 600 playlists on your phone called "good songs."

Adrian Garro joined MLB.com in 2016. Throughout his travels, both Bartolo Colon and Vin Scully have placed their hands on his shoulders. Not at the same time, though. That'd be amazing.
