We are always curious about the music that players choose to have played as they are walking to the plate for an at bat. The songs are like tattoos. For some they have a special meaning, while for others it is just something they really like.

We attended a Round Rock Express (Astros AAA affiliate) game recently and one of the players would come to the plate while The Mighty, Mighty Bosstones’ “Knock on Wood” would play over the speakers. We found this ironic as baseball players are some of the most superstitious people in the world.

Well, with so little playing time this season, we hadn’t noticed Jonny Gomes’ selection before last night. When he comes to the plate, we get a few seconds of rock instrumental and a bit of a wail from the lead singer, but we don’t get any lyrics. We thought the song sounded familiar, but we couldn’t place the tune without the lyrics.

By his third at bat, it finally hit us. We remembered a Buckcherry concert we had been to recently in NYC…

HERE IS JONNY GOMES’ SONG that he comes to bat with (Very NSFW).

Now we know why they don’t include any of the lyrics at the Trop.

That’s right…Jonny’s a Crazy Bitch, he fu…wait..what did he say? Nevermind.

    I agree with Possum. I think The Mighty, Mighty Bosstones were staring at her when the mentioned Knock On Wood.

    Perhaps he should change his song, considering that he can't hit the ever-lovin' ball!

    If Jonny G wasn't so entertaining, he'd be gone already.

    He had the same song last year..lol, Buckcherry is one of my fav. bands. Hinske has Seether's Gasoline, a song about an Ex you loth and burning her house down... It was last year, and maybe it was just on 70's night they played Zepp's Immigrant Song when Aki came up to bat.

    Walk up music is cool, I also like the thought process behind the songs that players pick.
