BJ Upton is making the media rounds this week to promote his upcoming charity bowling event. Yesterday morning he was in studio for “The Morning X” show on 97X (you can see a portion of the interview below).
During the interview, Upton was asked about his walk-up music (music picked by a player to be played as he comes to bat). Upton said that he wanted to use “No Hands” by Waka Flocka this past season, but apparently the Rays had a problem with that (via Seth of 97X on Twitter)
Upton said the Rays wouldn’t let him use Waka Flocka “No Hands” as his walk up song cause it was about making it rain and strippers.
OK, that seems reasonable. The Rays do promote themselves as a family-oriented organization. Except, it was apparently ok for Johnny Gomes to use “Crazy Bitch” by Buckcherry. And that song is far more suggestive than “No Hands.”
