Batter up! San Francisco Giants, Detroit Tigers walk-up music

9. Pitcher’s spot

Barry Zito (Game One starter) might turn to one of the best rappers on the planet, Nas, for "Doo Rags." We’re just glad that he doesn’t use one of his own tunes.

Detroit Tigers:

1. Austin Jackson (No. 14, CF)

Songs: "Ballin’," Young Jeezy; "Ambition," Wale

Young Jeezy’s "Ballin’", featuring Lil Wayne, is a good selection for a leadoff man — since it’s his job to get the party started. And, clearly, it’s also his "Ambition" to get on base.

2. Quintin Berry (No. 52, LF)

Song: "Hypnotize," the Notorious B.I.G.

This was one of Biggie’s biggest hits — and it fits as a walk-up song. Berry has many weapons in his arsenal (notably, his speed), but the Giants might be in trouble if hypnosis is one of them.

3. Miguel Cabrera (No. 24, 3B)

Song: "(Expletive) in Paris," Jay-Z and Kanye West

This was arguably the most memorable hit of last year — a surefire crowd-pleaser from the two kings of hip-hop. It’s the perfect choice for the best hitter in baseball — who this year became the game’s first triple-crown winner since 1967.

4. Prince Fielder (No. 28, 1B)

Songs: "Moments in Love," Art of Noise; "Down For My (Expletive)," C-Murder

Art of Noise’s experimental electronic love ballad, which moves along at a strikingly glacial pace, is no doubt dramatic — but it’s a weird one for a walk-up. C-Murder’s hip-hop blast is a much safer bet.
