Walk it off.
A player's walk-up music is often one of the most underrated aspects of the game of baseball. In a sport clouded by how much time is wasted, the walk-up song offers an opportunity for a player to not only entertain fans, but also give them a brief glimpse into their personality.
Every year, NBC LA brings you the walk-up songs for your Los Angeles Dodgers.
Early in the season, it's an afterthought for players, some prefer to keep the same music year-after-year for superstitious reasons—cough, Clayton Kershaw—others, will constantly change their music throughout the season as new music comes out, adjusting to their mood throughout the season.
Most of the 2019 roster changed their music this season, with Cody Bellinger bringing it back to 1976. Others, you've never heard before as newcombers A.J. Pollock, Joe Kelly, and Russell Martin brought new songs to this season.
