Josh Reddick uses George Michael’s ‘Careless Whisper’ as walk-up song (Video)


Most baseball fans are aware that Oakland A’s outfielder Josh Reddick is cut from a different cloth. But if you needed any evidence of such, the veteran laid it all on the table recently when he decided to use George Michael’s 1984 hit ‘Careless Whisper’ as his walk-up song.

Generally speaking, most times walk-up songs are that of either popular tunes you can find on the Billboard charts or songs that tend to amp up players.

There are of course exceptions to the rule as we’ve seen in the past when players jokingly use songs that are obviously the result of a poor bet, like when Troy Tulowitzki used Hanna Montana as a walk-up a few seasons ago. But Reddick seemingly turned it up another level which his song choice, a song which Athletics fans are hilariously thrilled with.

They may not have been enjoying it as much as reliever Sean Doolittle though, who was seen jamming to the saxophone laden riff.
