It can not be said that we were not warned. On Monday, in Rangers' last spring exhibition, Elvis gave Andrus a new walk-up song. A well-known song, you could say. One that your child has probably played on Youtube so many times that you (the computer, your child) could throw it through a wall. One that has sneaked into the deepest crevasses of your brain and spends less memetic information like the faces of your loved ones. In some places you were safe from the song, but a ballpark was one of them. No more.
Yes, "Baby Shark", the incredibly catchy children. "A song that has morphed from a very old nursery rhyme to become a world conquering chart topper has hit baseball, we blamed Andrus for it, but he only does it for his son, and Andrus said it was the favorite song of the 20 months old Elvis Jr., and if you do not try to make your child happy, what are you going to do?
But Andrus, though he warned us when the spring training came to an end, went into a drama, and he refused tell if his show music would be broadcast on the regular season Well:
If you do not want hear that "Baby Shark "Coming out of your TV about 1,000 times in the next six months is your best bet for hoping for break-ins, but superstition baseball players will change everything when they fight, including their walk-up songs, but Andrus went 3: 4 with one Things and two RBIs, Dear God.
It's not just Andrus, as it turns out. Cincinnati's Jose Iglesias also used Baby Shark as walk-up music on the opening day. Iglesias went 2 for 3. Dear God.
Even though the players themselves make no choice, we are not sure:
There is a decent human coincidence that you, dear reader , just say, I do not like it. I hope it goes away.
"If you do not like it, you better get used to it," said Andrus. "It will not go away."
