Based on the reports of Prince’s cause of death, a tribute from A-Rod seems somewhat appropriate. Why should ballplayers be the only profession to have walk up music? I’m going to start my day with my own walk up music. I wonder if the Yankees have the balls to bench him.
Look there are plenty of reasons to hate A-rod. However, using Prince walkup music in memory of the artist isn’t a legit reason. Also quoting batting averages two weeks into the season when a 3 hit night could turn that dreadful average respectable.
First at-bat: Erotic City (instrumental only)
Second at-bat: Kiss
Third at-bat: Pop Life
Fourth at-bat: Alphabet Street
A-Rod told reporters, including David Lennon of Newday, he used a different Prince song for each at-bat “as a tribute to one of the great legends.”
