Pregame batting practice around the league is always accompanied by some kind of music blasted over the public address system. Since there are no fans in the stadium at 4:30 p.m., the choice of music is usually left up to the players — which means all sorts of rap, R&B; and hard rock.

For some reason, though, country has become the preferred sound at RFK. Now, country music is one thing, but it’s even worse when it’s the same five songs every single day (no jokes about how every song sounds the same anyway). Hey, if a majority of the players want to listen to Toby Keith belt out “How Do You Like Me Now?” on continuous loop, fine.

But seriously, can’t we get a little variety here?
