One of the best running traditions that comes with the start of baseball season is the Athletic department coming out with the Sounds of Baum. We got everyone’s walkout song for the season right there. So in the interest of hard hitting service journalism we have to ask the important questions.
Who has the best walk out song?
Let’s do this in the most scientific way possible with P-P-P-POWER RANKINGS with arbitrary categories for each.
We’re an SEC School and are Required to Have Country Songs
- Casey Martin: The Only Place I Call Home by Justin Moore

Yeah we got quite a few random ones this year.
Walk Up Classics
10. Caden Monke: All Of The Lights by Kanye West
9. Evan Taylor: Hypnotize by Notorious B.I.G.
Two classics. A good way to narrow down the top 10.
The Really Good Ones We Had to Rank
8. Isaiah Campbell: Devil Eyes by Hippie Sabotage
Zay is going with the same song as last year, and it’s a good one.
7. Patrick Wicklander: The Greatest Show by The Greatest Showman
Big respect for going with the musical route. Really undervalued in walk up song territory.
6. Kole Ramage: Team by Lorde
5. Jack Kenley: Here Comes the Hot Stepper by Ini Kamoze
4. Dominic Flether: Clumsy by Fergie
It’s no national anthem remix but it’ll still do.
3. Collin Taylor: My Humps by Black Eyed Peas
Shoutout to every middle school in the early 2000’s.
2. Casey Opitz: Boombastic by Shaggy
This is the second year in a row Optiz has brought out a damn good one. I was about to go with this as number one until...
1. Kevin Kopps: Bad Boys by Inner Circle
DO YOU GET IT? HIS NAME IS COPS.
Kevin Kopps takes the crown this year.
