The most important accessory of baseball, aside from the bats and the gloves, is the walkup song. In some circles, it might even top those two, just saying.
For one thing, it’s more noticeable.
Ever been sitting at an MLB game waiting for the next at-bat, and you hear a catchy walkup song? Often ballparks will have the song listed on the big screen, but for the ocularly challenged, or those doomed with bad seats, it can be hard to see. This website is here to help you out.

Finally, we have these wonderful souls.
Really, I thought there’d be more.
