If we told you that Tony Sanchez, the backup catcher for the Pittsburgh Pirates, chose a Disney song for his 2014 walk-up music, you'd probably guess something piratey. "Peter Pan" and "Pirates of the Caribbean," for instance, might offer thematic picks.
But no, Sanchez, picked a song from a more recent Disney animated hit, one that my 3-year-old was begging to watch last night. "Frozen" it is. Specifically, Sanchez picked "Let It Go," the Oscar-winner for best original song, performed by Idina Menzel. (Or, Adele Dazeem, if you're John Travolta.)
Not familiar? Here you go.
Sanchez said his other selections for this season are Nelly's "E.I." and Mariah Carey's "Fantasy," making a whole trio of odd song choices for a 25-year-old MLB player. Nelly? Argh. But it could be worse. He could have chosen Flo-Rida.
