Loup, Osuna, Sanchez and Smith

Aaron Loup

The Outsiders by Eric Church

Loup is one of two pitchers on the roster who uses a country song. The album itself was nominated for Best Country at the 57th annual Grammy Awards.

Roberto Osuna

Don’t Panic by French Montana

The song title is self-explanatory for Osuna Matata fans.

But, French Montana is neither French or from Montana. His birth name is Karim Kharbouch he was born in Morrocco who immigrated to the United States with his family when he was 13-years old.

Aaron Sanchez

Ambition by Wale

The self-titled album was nominated for Best Rap Song at the 55th annual Grammy Awards.

Wale even had an Ambition tour that featured artists such as Rick Ross, J. Cole, and Big Sean.

Joe Smith

My Kind of Party by Jason Alden

‘My Kind of Party’ is a song by Jason Aldean, which was written by another Country artist, Brantley Gilbert.

Smith is the only other pitcher who uses a country song for his intro music. Justin Smoak and Aaron Loup are the other players who use country songs as well.

The song went No. 2 on Billboard’s US Hot Country Songs in 2010.
