Ryan Goins

Devastated by Joey Bada$$

Joey previewed this song at Coachella 2016. The song discusses his pre-fame problems and message about turning his struggles into strengths.

For Goins and others, people can relate to that when they’re trying to find their breakthrough no what it is. Go-Go has slowly proven himself so far this season.

Russell Martin

I Feel It Coming by The Weeknd feat. Daft Punk

A song by a Canadian artist featuring two French DJ’s is an excellent combination since Martin is technically French-Canadian.

The 34-year old used Courage by the Tragically Hip last summer once the band started their Man Machine Poem Tour.

A local baseball player using local music is the best of both worlds.

Kendrys Morales

Extremo Extremo by Jhonny Ventura

TNT by AC/DC

‘TNT’ is another instant classic. There aren’t many bands that have given sports fans more “pump-up” anthems than AC/DC, and their popularity still thrives in ballparks today.

"‘Cause I’m T.N.T., I’m dynamite (T.N.T.) and I’ll win the fight (T.N.T.) I’m a power load (T.N.T.) watch me explode"

The line is so fitting with Morales since he is the type-of-player to hit the long balls.
