The New York Mets Honor MCA & The Beastie Boys
Last night, The New York Mets honored the late-great Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys by having the starting lineup use Beastie songs as their walk-up music. Like so many people, I found this so incredibly cool. While this is strictly a Baseball blog and I generally feel uncomfortable writing about other topics; I must admit that I have a deep love for music and the Beastie Boys have always been some of my musical heroes. With that said, I feel somewhat comfortable tying in the 2 here.
I tip my cap to the New York Mets organization for such a classy move. Here is the starting lineup and what song each player walked out to. Also, below I have posted screen shots of relevant tweets. MCA forever.
1. SS Ruben Tejada – “Intergalactic”
2. 2B Daniel Murphy – “No Sleep ’til Brooklyn”
3. 3B David Wright – “Brass Monkey”
4. RF Lucas Duda – “The New Style”
