The Complete 2009 Indians At-Bat Music Guide

Posted By on Tue, May 5, 2009 at 1:58 PM


The Indians media relations guru Bart Swain must love me. One minute I'm e-mailing about Keith Woolner and the next minute I'm sending him questions about the music all the guys use when they're up at the plate.

Anyway, there's a lengthy piece and a lengthy Q&A from Keith Woolner, the Indians Manager of Baseball Analysis and Statistics, later today or early tomorrow. For now, here's a complete list of all the Tribe's at-bat music selections (and entrances for relievers and pitchers) for anyone who cares.
