The Los Angeles Dodgers will host their first home game of the season on Tuesday, and while many fans in attendance will come to watch their favorite players take the field, there will be one part of the game that everyone can enjoy: the music.
In baseball, the walk-up song can be just as important as the player's performance itself. Whether it's stepping into the batter's box, or heading to the mound for the first time, the right music is key to get a player amped up.
The 2016 Los Angeles Dodgers are no different, and thanks to the team's resident disc jockey, DJ Severe, this year's edition of the boys in blue can be assured to have the right music to go with all the memorable moments of the season.
DJ Severe has been the Dodgers in-game DJ since 2009 and has also spun for the Los Angeles Kings and LA Galaxy, respectively. He started as a Dodger fan in the bleachers, and knows what the fanbase wants to hear between innings.
In the meantime, Severe shared with us what songs the Dodger players chose for their walk out songs for the home opener of the 2016 season. The list is below, and you can enjoy the tunes yourself when you head out to Chavez Ravine to catch a game.
