PLAYLIST: Taking a look at the VandyBoys’ walk-up music

We know the Commodores can get it done on the field, but is their music taste is strong as their play?
Mattigan Kelly
Cooper Davis (3), who chose “Portland” by Drake as his entrance music, slides into home in Vanderbilt’s win over South Alabama.

A baseball player’s walk-up song is a unique and special way for players to both express themselves and their own taste in music while simultaneously getting themselves in the right mindset for their next at-bat. A lot of thought goes into picking the perfect walk-up song.

Those who have been to Hawkins Field this season know that the VandyBoys have a wide range of entrance music. From Dion’s 1961 hit “Runaround Sue” to Roddy Ricch’s 2019 chart-topping song “The Box,” the Commodores have their bases covered. Here is a playlist of the VandyBoys’ 2020 walk-up songs:
