Someone in the OSU baseball offices must be in the Cowboys Ride For Free Slack because we have been wanting the OSU baseball Twitter account to post the walk-up songs of every player on the roster in a cool graphic. On Thursday morning, they did just that.
Ever sitting at Allie P. with your favorite Cowboy strolling to the batter's box or the pitcher's mound and wonder "What's the name of that song?" We've got you covered - check out #okstate's 2019 walk-up songs #GoPokes #MeetMeAtAllieP pic.twitter.com/pt4zqXZ8yc— Cowboy Baseball (@OSUBaseball) March 14, 2019
Let’s check out some of the highlights.
Pitcher Jacob Ruder chose “Rude Boy” by Rihanna, as if he had any other option given his last name. Outfielder Carson McCusker selected “Your Love” by The Outfield, which seems like a solid choice because he, you know, plays in.....The Outfield.
Catcher Bryce Carter chose “Mr. Carter” by Lil Wayne because, once again, we like a nice play on words here. For those of you who like the NBA 2K Franchise, Pitcher Brady Basso chose “Howlin’ For you” by The Black Keys (2K14) and Pitcher John Kelly chose “Shook Ones Part II” by Mobb Deep (2K18).
There’s a lot of flavors on this list. Dua Lipa had two selections with “Electricty” (Noah Sifrit) and “New Rules” (Christian Funk). Drake had two selections as well, with one being “Tuscan Leather” (C.J. Varela) and the other being “Over” (Kaden Krowka). There’s nothing quite like some throwback Drake.
The best country flavors include “Dirt On My Boots” by Jon Pardi (Alix Garcia) and Colin Simpson’s selection “Real Good Time” by Aaron Watson.
We had an Elvis Presley sighting from Infielder Andrew Navigato, who chose “Jailhouse Rock”. Infielder Cross Factor chose one of the most popular songs from 2018, Kendrick Lamar’s “All The Stars” from the Black Panther soundtrack.
Noah Sifrit is both a Pitcher and an Outfielder, and is listed as having two different walk-up songs. The first is “Electricity” with the other song being “G.O.M.D” off J. Cole’s iconic “2014 Forest Hills Drive” album.
Here is a playlist with every walk-up song from OSU’s 2019 roster, excluding Jay-Z’s “Gotta Have It” (Tyler Polk). That song can be found on Jay-Z’s streaming platform, but let’s be honest, nobody has a Tidal subscription.
