Aside from an awesome win, there were two really good things about going to Sunday’s Rockies game: our seats were sheltered from the constant rain and our seats were near a big speaker, so we could really hear the music. I’ve been obsessed with at-bat or entrance music for a while now, and apparently I’m not alone — people find this site every day because they want to know about the at-bat music of various Rockies players. My list isn’t finished yet, but I might as well share what I have so far. I will do my best to update this list and keep it current.
Garrett Atkins: What I Are by Timbaland (I thought this was a remix of Justin Timberlake’s Bringing Sexy Back for the longest time)
Jamey Carroll: Pink Houses by John Mellencamp
Manny Corpas: Impacto by Daddy Yankee
Josh Fogg: Slow Ride by Foghat
Brian Fuentes: For You by Stain’d
Brad Hawpe: Rockstar by Nickelback
Todd Helton: Back in the Saddle by Aerosmith
Kazuo Matsui: Tricky by Run DMC
Ryan Spilborghs: The Sweet Escape by Gwen Stefani (everybody at Coors Field sings along with this — WOOOO OOOOH WOOOO OOOOH!)
Troy Tulowitzki: I’m a Flirt by R Kelly
I’m not sure about these:
Matt Holliday: The Great Divide by Scott Stapp, but I can’t remember if he’s still using it
Willy Taveras: used to have Yeah by Usher, but has a new song — reggaeton, Spanish, very fast; the closest thing I’ve found so far is El Mambo de las Shorty’s by Tito El Bambino (but don’t rely on that because I’ve only heard Willy’s new song a few times)
Yorvit Torrealba: He’s used various Daddy Yankee songs, but his current song is NOT Impacto as reported elsewhere on the internet. I’ve listened to snippets of a million Daddy Yankee songs, and haven’t been able to figure out if his current song is by Daddy Yankee. I’ve also started listening to snippets of other reggaeton, and if I listen to much more, Ben is going to throw my computer out the window.
Update: Torrealba’s song is Salio El Sol by Don Omar. Thanks to Karlosest2403!
I accidentally say “reggaetron” every time I mean to say “reggaeton” and now I’m convinced that Reggaetron, a gigantic robot set on world destruction by means of super-powered lasers and a blend of reggae, dancehall, merengue, hip hop, and bachata is going to appear at Coors Field one day soon.
