Happ, Howell, Leone and Liriano’s tunes

J.A. Happ

Take It All Back 2.0 by Judah and the Lion

‘Take It All Back’ is the 11th track from Judah and the Lion’s debut album Folk Hop N’ Roll.

It’s very rare for a baseball player to use a folk song compared to a heavier beat by Drake or Kanye West.

The song reached the No.1 spot on Billboard’s Alternative Songs chart for three consecutive weeks.

J.P. Howell

Tunnel Vision Instrumental by Kodak Black

The song title is ideal for pitchers on the mound. Eyeing down home plate to get a strike down the middle.

‘Tunnel Vision’ is the second single from Kodak Black’s debut album Painting Pictures.

Dominic Leone

Split (Only U) by Tiesto & The Chainsmokers

Leone is the only player on the roster to use an EDM song. The song itself has over 28,000,000 plays on Spotify and is very familiar with the fan base at the Rogers Centre.

Francisco Liriano

Vaiven by Daddy Yankee

Daddy Yankee, aka Ramon Luis Ayala Rodriguez, aspired to be a baseball player and even tried out for the Seattle Mariners.

It wasn’t meant to be as he turned to music and that worked out pretty well for the King of Reggaeton.
