Around this time last year, then- Nationals outfielder Gerardo Parra changed his walk-up song to the popular children's tune 'Baby Shark.' From there, the Nationals flipped the switch from a middling team to one that would make a run to a World Series title. Along the way, the shark clap that injected excitement into the stadium and dugout played a role.
Fast forward 12 months and it seems that the 'Baby Shark' magic is still doing wonders for Parra and his new team, the Tokyo Giants. Signing with the team in the offseason, the outfielder has gotten off to a fast start in the NPB and 'Baby Shark' is still his walk-up song. The Giants sit at 5-2, and Parra blasted his third homerun of the season on Saturday.
Of course, the 'Baby Shark' celebration had to come out.

Parra's hot streak at the plate combined with the Giants' top of the division standing can really only mean one thing. The 'Baby Shark' success is showing no signs of slowing down.
