Oakland A's Josh Reddick Uses 'Careless Whisper' As His Walk-Up Song (Video)
Posted by Steve on May 15 2014
Baseball players take great pride in their walk-up songs, the song that plays when they're going up to bat.  Most of the time, it's a rock song used to pump them up before their at bat.  The Oakland A's Josh Reddick, though, chose an alternate route.  For the past few games, he's been using the 80's hit from George Michael and Wham, Careless Whisper.

When asked why he did this, the answer was pretty simple.  He heard the song before the game the other day and thought it would be funny.  He played well that game, so he did it again.  He played well again.  So it stuck.  Baseball players are superstitious, so we can assume that he'll keep using the song as long as he keeps playing well.
