STEVE SAX DIVISION
No. 1: Fetty Wap
"Trap Queen" (Spotify)
Players: Yasmani Grandal, Delino DeShields, Brandon Phillips, Lorenzo Cain, Johnny Monell, Dexter Fowler, Anthony Rizzo
Fowler: "It's just something I vibe with. Gets me going. You know it's a good walk-up song when you see players on other teams -- and the fans -- vibing to it too."
No. 8: Ramin Djawadi
No. 2: Kevin Gates
No. 7: Bobby Shmurda
No. 3: Frank Sinatra
"Fly Me To The Moon" (Spotify)
Player: Todd Frazier
Frazier: "I hated the song when I was younger. It was always playing in my grandparents' house when I was a kid. There's no beat, just a little rhythm, but you couldn't really dance to it besides the waltz or whatever. But as I got older, I started to understand the meaning of the song. Now it reminds me of my grandparents. Hip-hop? I don't know, it's all a blur to me, man. You can't understand most of the stuff going on in the music and I don't know how you can get fired up to that."
No. 6: Don Miguelo
No. 4: The Outfield
"Your Love" (Spotify)
Players: Grant Green, Charlie Blackmon, Gordon Beckham
Green: "I heard it first when I was a sophomore in college -- it was actually [Chicago White Sox infielder] Gordon Beckham's music -- and when I heard it I just fell in love with it. I've used it ever since."
No. 5: Motley Crue
"Trap Queen" (74%), "I Don't Get Tired" (52%), "Fly Me To The Moon" (62%) & "Your Love" (59%) advance in The Whammys. pic.twitter.com/czDKL4JvfB— Baseball Tonight (@BBTN) September 2, 2015
BILL SINGER DIVISION
No. 1: Taylor Swift
No. 8: Andy Mineo
No. 2: Big Sean Feat. Drake
No. 7: Brantley Gilbert
No. 3: Nicky Jam
No. 6: Florida Georgia Line
No. 4: Guns N' Roses
"Welcome To The Jungle" (Spotify)
Players: Craig Kimbrel, Eric Sogard, Carlos Beltran
Kimbrel: "I was going through a bunch of songs with some of my teammates on the plane back in 2011. Finally someone said I should go with something rock 'n' roll because I'm a closer. So we picked 'Welcome to the Jungle.' When Eric Gagne was coming up in L.A., that was his song. It stuck for me, and people seem to like it. At this point, I don't even know if I could change it. There are times when it sounds louder than others. When the ballpark is packed and the crowd is loud, the song adds to the atmosphere."
No. 5: Jim Johnston
"You Can't Stop Me" (94%), "Blessings" (58%), "People Back Home" (53%) and WWE Entrance (90%) advance in the Whammys. pic.twitter.com/eSt63ikTo0— Baseball Tonight (@BBTN) September 2, 2015
Here were the Day 1 first-round matchups:
SAM HORN DIVISION
No. 1: Led Zeppelin
Players: Chase Utley, Huston Street, Adam Liberatore, Ryan Lavarnway, Scott Kazmir, Jeff Samardzija
Utley: "My sister-in-law suggested the song. I listened to it and thought it was cool, so I went with it. It seemed to work and I didn't want to jinx anything, so I stuck with it. Sometimes, I don't even hear it, to be honest with you. I came up at a time when [walk-up music] was just kind of getting started. Now it seems like the first thing rookies do is request a song to come out to."
No. 8: Jack White
Players: Ian Kinsler, Neil Walker, Ryan Zimmerman
Kinsler: "I began using the song after meeting Jack White, who is a huge Tigers fan. He's an awesome guy. Very down to earth. [He's] not necessarily what you'd think when you see his image, but he's definitely a brilliant mind."
No. 2: Flo Rida
Players: Jake Lamb, Matt Joyce, Brian Dozier, Shane Greene, Bryan Shaw
Dozier: "I'm from Mississippi; I love country music. When I switched to rap this season, you should've heard the chaos on my Twitter feed, [people] saying they've never seen that side of me. They thought I was only country; but I say I'm part-country, part-gangsta."
No. 7 : Marky Mark & The Funky Bunch
No. 3: Jason Aldean
No. 6: 2Pac
"All Eyez on Me" (Spotify | iTunes)
Players: David Ortiz, Matt Garza
Ortiz: "I listen to everything. When I'm driving and I hear some s--- that puts me in a good mood, I go from there. Right now I'm playing 2Pac, 'All Eyes on Me.' Sounds about right, doesn't it? All eyes on me? (Laughs)"
No. 4: Silento
No. 5: Secreto El Biberon
Silento's "Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)" advances in The Whammys with 54% of the vote.— Baseball Tonight (@BBTN) September 1, 2015
FRANK VIOLA DIVISION
No. 1 : Johnny Cash
"God's Gonna Cut You Down" (Spotify)
Players: Joe Beimel, Glen Perkins, Drew Storen, Andrew Miller, Nathan Eovaldi, Cody Allen
Beimel: "When I was in Colorado, I came in three days in a row to face Lance Berkman. The last day I got him out, and on the play I had to run over and cover first. After the out, he looks at me and says, 'What is your entrance music?' I told him the song and the next year, he started using it when he came up to hit. I was like, 'Really, dude?' But I'm sticking with it. I'm more likely to change my socks than my entrance music."
No. 8: Ted Nugent
With 61% of the vote, Ted Nugent's "Stranglehold" advances to the next round of The Whammys. #WalkupVote— Baseball Tonight (@BBTN) September 1, 2015
No. 2: Marc Anthony
No. 7: Rich Homie Quan
With 58% of the vote, Marc Anthony's "Vivir Mi Vida" advances to the next round of The Whammys. #WalkupVote— Baseball Tonight (@BBTN) September 1, 2015
No. 3: Lynyrd Skynyrd
"Simple Man" (Spotify)
Players: Madison Bumgarner, Danny Espinosa, Jacob deGrom
deGrom: "I never picked anything in the minor leagues. I would always just tell them, 'Play whatever.' But then I didn't really like the song they were playing when I got called up. So I just decided to change to 'Simple Man.' I like slower music like that. It kind of calms me down, I guess. I don't want to get too amped up going into the first inning."
No. 6: Meek Mill
"Bout That Life" (Spotify)
Players: Jonathan Papelbon, Adam Jones
Papelbon: "In the beginning, it's Ric Flair going off in Atlanta. And then Meek Mill, the rapper, goes into his song. I'm more interested in the Ric Flair part. When I come into the game, I want it blaring through the speaker system. It's like I'm stepping into the ring and I'm Ric Flair. I'm out there competing and I'm trying to body slam you, 'cuz it's go time."
No. 4: Eric Church
"The Outsiders" (Spotify)
Players: David Phelps, Zach Duke, Cody Allen
Allen: "I'm a big country music fan and it's just an awesome song. I used to listen to it every morning on the way to the gym. It sounds good over the speakers, especially a certain part right in the middle of the song. I had a good year last year, so I rode with it."
No. 5: Macklemore and Ryan Lewis
Coming Thursday: The Sweet 16
