Fans, both local and traveling, can enjoy the Cleveland Indians take on opponents at Progressive Field in downtown Cleveland, Ohio. While it’s currently under a multi-phase renovation, stadium visitors will soon be able to experience an enhanced view, expanding entryways, and new concession offerings.
A large part of the stadium experience is the music, and the Cleveland Indians really know how to rock out with a variety of walk up songs. Hip-hop/rap, rock, alternative, and electronic are just a few genres that make up the team’s walk-up playlist – music personally picked by the players to help them get in the zone as they walk up to the plate.
There are a total of 34 different walk-up songs between the Cleveland Indians players, and there’s no hard limit on the amount of songs a player may choose. First baseman Mike Napoli and catcher Roberto Perez lead the team with three walk-up songs each. Napoli opts for hip-hop/rap songs, choosing “Grove St. Party” by Waka Flocka Flame, “Pop, Lock & Drop It” by Huey, and “Whoomp! (There It Is)” by Tag Team. Perez fills the air with Latin music – specifically urban and Latino – with his selections of “Mi Vecinita” by Plan B, “Si Te Dejas Llevar” by Ozuna, and “Si Tú No Estás” by Nicky Jam.
Pitchers Andrew Miller, Trevor Bauer, and Mike Clevinger are the only players to select a pop, metal, or electronic song. Miller walks up to Michael Jackson’s “Beat It,” while Bauer goes a little harder with Amon Amarth’s “The Pursuit Of Vikings.” Clevinger feels the beat with Major Lazer’s “Light It Up.”
With six songs on the roster, rock music earns a second-place finish. Catcher Chris Gimenez walks up to either “Fix Me” by 10 Years or “Black Honey” by Thrice. Pitchers Cody Anderson and Jeff Manship enjoy walking out to Kid Rock’s “Born Free” and the Foo Fighters’ “Bridge Burning,” respectively.
