Introducing: The Baseball Team’s Walk-Up Songs


Written by Kaelyn Spickler

Do you like what you hear at baseball games when our guys walk up to the plate or mound? Here’s the meaning behind several of the songs you will definitely hear at Haley Toyota Field.

Kenny Mackovic (Pitcher)

Save A horse Ride A Cowboy -Big & Rich

“I chose this song because I wanted to send a message that I am serious, but I like to have a good time. Besides that, It’s been my anthem the last four years at Roanoke.”


Dean Hermanson

I’d Love to Change the World -Jetta (matstubs remix)

“The beat drop gets me mentally ready to compete, and it also provides the fans with something fun to listen to.”


Sam Watson

UCLA- RL Grime

“I chose it because it’s tough, and it’s also a fairly good, new song.”


Jack Howard

Love$ick -Mura Masa (ft. A$AP Rocky)

“One day I heard one of my roommates playing Love$ick in the house and I was like ‘That would be a really cool walk-up. What’s it called?” and the rest is history.  It has a really cool beat. I like the hook and A$AP’s second verse.”


Will Smith

F*** You-

“I chose it because I didn’t want to do country or rap, and it was a good in between. Most of all, it keeps me calm before an at-bat.”


Tyler De Meo

Metalingus- Alter Bridge

“I picked this walk up because when I hear this song play at the time I picked it to start, it really gets me pumped and ready for my at-bat. After hearing this walk-up I really feel like I’m ready to go and excited to hit!”
