Since the last time I posted on this topic in April, the Cubs' roster has had some turnover, and so has the roster of songs played when Cubs players come up to bat or in to pitch.
Some players have more than one song, played at different times of the game or in a different situation. A reminder that the Cubs make sure that any portions of songs played for walkup music are family-friendly and appropriate.
Here's a complete list of the songs you'll hear at Wrigley Field when the Cubs return home Friday to begin a series against the Texas Rangers. I've included everyone on the current active roster plus a couple of players on the DL.
My favorite is definitely Rondon's. It's got a good beat and gets people up and clapping (including the players) right before Hector comes in, frequently in a save situation. They've begun playing video of Hector on the boards when he comes in and his song is played.
The other song that gets people clapping, in the stands, dugout and bullpen, is the first one on Rizzo's list, generally played in his first plate appearance.
