Here are the 2020 Cubs walkup/intro songs

You can’t hear them at the ballpark this year, but listen for them on the broadcasts at home games.

Even though there are no fans in Wrigley Field this year, the Cubs are trying to make the experience for players feel “normal.” Thus you will still hear music played on the Wrigley Field P.A. system when each Cubs batter comes up to hit, or when a pitcher heads to the mound. Some of the songs are quite recognizable, others you might not be familiar with.

Below are the songs chosen by 2020 Cubs players, along with links to YouTube videos featuring those songs. The Cubs sent me a list of the first song each player uses; some use only one, but others have multiple song choices, noted as heard at the ballpark. The time, if indicated, is the point in the song where the walkup music starts, if it’s not at the beginning. Note: All songs played at Wrigley Field are family-friendly “clean” versions (some of these YouTube links might not be, though). Players on the current active roster who weren’t on the list the Cubs sent: Ian Happ, Jon Lester, Colin Rea and Ryan Tepera.
