Earlier this year I posted the walkup music used when Cubs players come to bat or pitchers enter the game.
Since there are quite a few new players currently on the ballclub, I thought it was time for an updated list. There haven’t been any changes for the players from the earlier list, but here’s the entire list of walkup music for everyone presently on the 25-man roster (plus Cole Hamels, currently on the injured list).
The times indicate where in the song the walkup music begins, if not at the beginning. Note that all music played at Wrigley Field is family-friendly.
Albert Almora Jr.: Bohemian Rhapsody, Queen (1:20)
Javier Baez: Zero, Farruko (2:10), also I Like It, Cardi B and Bad Bunny and Bonnie And Clyde, Cosculluela & Natti Natasha
David Bote: Brother, NEEDTOBREATHE, also Rebel Rebel, David Bowie
Brad Brach: Thunderstruck, AC/DC
Kris Bryant: Summer, Marshmello (:20), also Warm It Up, Kris Kross (about 1:00)
Victor Caratini: Bonita, J Balvin, Jowell & Randy
Steve Cishek: Song of Deliverance, Zach Williams

Willson Contreras: Para Sambar, Shelow Shaq feat. Mendonça Do Rio, Topo La Maskara & Tiko’s Groove (1:42)

The list I received from the Cubs did not have any songs listed for Tyler Chatwood or Rowan Wick.
And I’ll simply note that the title of Daniel Descalso’s song is... interesting.
Many thanks to Alyson Cohen and Emmanuel Salazar of the Cubs for sending me the updated music list.
