Cliff Lee, MLB,, Philadelphia Phillies and Stranglehold by Ted Nugent?

Was I hearing correctly during today’s broadcast of the Phillies and the Brewers? As this is my Sunday ritual, viewing the Phillies and hanging around the house.

Cliff Lee was on the mound today as the starting pitcher. When he batted, “Stranglehold” came on. “Stranglehold” Lyrics Click Link

Seems there is a playlist of music hand-picked  by each player that comes to bat at Citizens Bank Park. Some players have multiple.  I knew that Chase Utley played Kashmir by Zeppelin, but now the entire team has their tunes.   Click Link to view the Play list, quite extensive.

I turned to my son is disbelief and showed him the playlist. He commented, “Really, they play a children’s game Really? He played little league T ball @ 5 years, minors, Double AA,  Triple AAA then majors at 11-12yrs at Cherry Hill National and Cherry Hill Babe Ruth 13- 14 years. He as well is an avid sports fan.

I asked, “If you were a Pro baseball Player what music would you bat to?”  “Nyan Cat, the Techo Cat.” What, please explain.” “No one would take me seriously and I would screw with the pitchers head.. They would show a continuous loop on the screen at Citizen Bank Park.” He showed me the video below. Wow. I did not know the world of Nyan Cat as the video as over 94 million hits.  Incredible.

Myself, I would still stick to Rock and Roll.

BTW,  Phillies won 7-5.  You go Cliff Lee. Keep playing  “Stranglehold.” Please, stay in Philly. Trade rumors up already.
