I’ve thought about this song for a really long time, but in a bit of a different way. Since I was younger, I’ve always wanted to be a pitcher, and more specifically a closer. So instead of a walk-up song, I had thought of an intro from the bullpen/warm-up song for my pick. That song has always been Godsmack’s “I Stand Alone.”

This head-banger gets me incredibly pumped up every time it comes up on Spotify or randomly on the radio. It’s got a heavy sound that can be a bit intimidating to those that haven’t heard it before.

While the lyrics may not really connect to anything baseball-related, it still drives the point that whether you’re out on the mound, or in the batter’s box, you are alone facing your opponent.

Those one-on-one match-ups are the best parts about baseball, and this song embraces it all the way.
