something new at Wrigley. Instead of organist Gary Pressy playing a ditty before a #Cubs player's at-bat, it's their music of choice. 16 minutes ago via web

Sweet. Wrigley is now as cool as Syracuse's AAA Alliance Bank Stadium!

This is good to hear because I just noticed it a few innings ago and I thought I was crazy for never noticing before today :laugh2:

I learned of this from @fakesweetlou's account before Muskat. They are still playing the organ, but not for walk-up batters.

Yeah ryan, cuz when people think of you they automatically think of female hip-hop girls from the 90's.

This is stupid. If you're going to have an old ballpark like Wrigley Field, then keep the old traditions.

Well when the team sucks this bad, might as well provide some sort of music for the fans to enjoy

Yeah, as if ratting out teammates to the press and wearing affliction T-shirts didn't paint enough of a picture of him being a massive douche, today he has a fishing bobblehead come out and that as his walkup song. Wow. Just wow.

Tell me he does not wear affliction T-shirts. Him swinging at 3-1 pitches alone makes him a douche.

That bobblehead is the most ******** thing I've ever seen.

And if he really does wear Affliction shirts, I am really going to have to hate his guts.

I can't find a picture but I'm pretty sure I've seen him wearing them in postgame before.

I'm about 90% sure it was Theriot. That was right whhen I turned on the game though so I could be wrong.

If the Rumors about Wells habitually enjoying the Chicago nightlife Mark Grace style before game days are true then his walk-up song could be "One Scotch, One Bourbon, One Beer."

Not to mention they put up the Toyota sign today. It doesn't look that bad, but I liked the traditional look before

The only way I would be okay with this is if they played surfin bird for Byrd.

Wait so what were some of the other walk-up songs?

Did anyone go with Poker Face?

I couldn't make out any other songs. I tried.

It sounded like Castro's walkup was that Zombie Nation song, but I'm not sure.

I forget who it was, but one the Astros last weekend came up to the Big Show's theme.

If that ever happened, I would die from laughing so hard. I can just imagine it.

When I went to the 5/28 loss versus the Cardinals, singing Bon Jovi's "Living on a Prayer" was definitely the best part.
