Its come to my attention that there’s a YouTube channel called “Epic Baseball Songs.” The channel consists entirely of of one minute-long songs that are dedicated to a Major League Baseball player, and some of them are pretty hilarious. The channel has 25 of these songs in total, and more than a few of them feature Yankees players — past and present. The songs are very short, and the lyrics are pretty repetitive, but that’s part of what makes them great. Here’s a look at few of the Yankees-related ones.
“The Masahiro Tanaka Song” – Very Mortal Kombat-esque.
“The Jacoby Ellsbury Song” – Because maybe the most attractive player in the MLB deserves some smooth disco.
“The Ruben Sierra Song” – This one’s sung to the tune of Outkast’s “TheWay You Move,” which was Ruben Sierra’s actual walk-up song!
“The Hiroki Kuroda Song” – Kuroda’s ode is sung to the tune of… Danza Kuduro. Because Kuroda sounds like Kuduro, I guess?
“The Chase Headley Song” – This joint proves that no one should mess with Chase Headley.
Although its not a Yankees-related song, this one’s my personal favorite: “The Matt Kemp Song,” accompanied by the smoothest of smooth jazz.
