Welcome to the Jungle!

In 1989, the movie "Major League" immortalized the entrance of fictional Cleveland Indians closer...Ricky Vaughn.

Now...I don't bring up "Wild Thing" to segue sloppily to some hackneyed post on how Charlie Sheen is a screw up.  That piece is a dime a dozen and you can hit up the Googles if you want to follow that death spiral.

I bring up "Wild Thing" to segue sloppily to something Washington Nationals pitcher Collin Balester posted on Twitter.

I know that a lot of people use this song but I have been listening to it and it's pumping me up. My 2011 walk out song will be welcome to the jungle by guns and roses

Nice. Choice.

I once suggested to some co-workers that we start the day with "Welcome to the Jungle", but, unfortunately, it never caught on.

You see, I'm a big fan of entrance music.  Heck...I've even thrown out talk of entrance music into some of the interviews I've done on this site.

So I've gotta ask...who has the best entrance in the big leagues and what song would YOU choose to enter the ballgame to? 

Me?!?  I've gotta go with "For Whom the Bell Tolls" by Metallica.
