The walk-up music for MLB players with Top 20 batting averages

by Briana Martin

"Music is the strongest form of magic." -Marilyn Manson

That's an actual quote.

Is there magic power in music? We listed the players with the Top 20 batting averages from the regular season and included their walk-up music/ballpark music/plate music to see if we could find a trend. The only thing we found was a list of good songs... and Darius Rucker singing Wagon Wheel.
