Red Sox At-Bat Songs, Pitcher Entrance Music Range from Bon Jovi to Pitbull


Jonathan Papelbon has shipped out to Philadelphia, so “Shipping Up to Boston” by the Dropkick Murphys — the closer’s notorious entrance song — is no longer played throughout the Fenway Park PA system. That leaves “Sweet Caroline” as one of Fenway’s sing-a-longs.

But a few months into the 2012 season, some new Fenway favorites have emerged. Below is a complete list of the 2012 Red Sox at-bat songs and pitcher entrance music.

Sarah McKenna (vice president of fan Services and entertainment), John Carter (director of Red Sox Productions) and the Red Sox DJ,  TJ Connelly, reserve the right to overrule any song selection from the players. The crew makes sure to listen to every song before it players, and TJ edits out all profanity.
