Five Great Walk-Up Songs That Baseball Needs Now

1. The Batman Theme

Don't pretend you don't know it. The original. The classic. Perhaps the greatest theme song of all time, heralding the arrival of Adam West every week to fight the forces of evil. If it's good enough for West, it's probably 1,000 times too good for everyone else.

And really, come on. How has no one ever thought to use this before now? Player leaves the on-deck circle, heads to the plate, what does he have in his hand? That's right, a bat. You can't tell me there isn't at least one guy, in all these years, who thought to himself, "You know, I've got this bat, and I'm the man. That kind of makes me...holy shit! I have an awesome idea!"

Bat. Man. Batman. This is an idea whose time has come. Get on it, somebody.

So those are our picks. Think you've got a better idea? Stick it in the comments, and maybe you'll get to be part of some future list.
