This season, with new video boards and audio programming at Wrigley Field, the team has put together new music for Cubs hitters to step to the plate or come to the mound.
Perhaps you know some of the songs. I knew a few, but most were unfamiliar to me. Many thanks to Cubs Manager of Communications Kevin Saghy for sending me this complete list of Cubs intro music (for players on the current 25-man roster, along with a couple of players currently on the DL). Some players, as you see, have more than one choice and specific instructions as to which part of the song to use!
