The new at-bat song is a Paul Konerko suggestion: Metallica’s ‘Seek & Destroy. ‘ Beckham wanted to go song-less:
“(‘Your Love’) is a romantic song,” Guillen said. “You need to pick a song that’s tough.”
“I don’t know how people (decide) when they’re going to change what kind of music they’re playing. When Babe Ruth hit, and all those guys were playing, they didn’t have a sound system in the stadium, and they had like 4,000 hits. I think the last thing Paul Molitor and all those Hall of Famers worried about was what kind of music was playing.”
but if Beckham starts hitting things change:
“If he’s going to start hitting, I’ll bring the band. I’ll pay every day for them to have a concert for him,” said a smiling Guillen. … “But … I would bring Michael Jackson back to life. I would have a concert every day and fire all the coaches.”
UPDATE: Michael and the band are coming!
