In baseball, some players choose to have their appearance in a game be punctuated by a musical selection. The most common forms are for a relief pitcher coming out of the bullpen or for a hitter approaching the batter's box for an at bat.

Player music selection generally falls into four unofficial categories:

  • Background-related: Referring to American-born players, the song could reference their ethnic heritage or their birthplace.
  • Characteristic-related: The song references the player's skills, uniform number, or personality.
  • Name-related: The player's name is the same or similar to the artist or song title.
  • Personal taste: The song just happens to be one the player (or the team's audio staff) likes.

All teams listed are current team, as free agents, or as retired. The music under each name is in the chronological order that it was used, with the last song being the most recent. The music is not up-to-date for all of the players, as the information is difficult to come by and some change their music often (Manny Ramirez, for example, changes it every at-bat.)
