Rays general manager Joe Maddon recently heard the song and liked it so much that he wanted it to represent his team at Tropicana Field.
Then he took it a step further. Maddon had a gong installed within the ballpark, and had the team hire someone to bang it. The banger (?) dresses in a costume that combines Greek, Roman and Scottish traditions — which includes a plaid kilt, metal armor and leather gladiator boots.
Between the gong and the live stingrays swimming in a tank in center field, Tropicana Field has pretty good live entertainment.
Uses for the gong remain unclear, however, but the possibilities are endless.
