Nationals’ Zach Walters using ‘Do You Want to Build a Snowman?’ as walk-up music (vid)


Washington Nationals utility infielder Zach Walters used “Do You Want to Build a Snowman” as his walk-up, at-bat music during Tuesday’s game against the Los Angeles Angels at Nationals Park.

Another day, another story illustrating how “Frozen” has completely taken over major league baseball (see here and here), as it has pretty much every other ever-loving thing on the planet. Making Walters’ song selection even moreĀ amusing/terrifying/sad/awesome/weird is that Walters previously used “Let it Go” for his walk-up music earlier this season.

Certainly not as an intimidating or manly of a song choice as teammate Jayson Werth’s decision to use the theme to “Game of Thrones” as his at-bat music last season, but hey, to each their own.

As mentioned previously the numerous times the subject of the Disney smash hit and unstoppable cultural phenomenon has been addressed here, on a sports blog (whaaa???), the film is so well-known and the catchy songs so overly heard by parents of young children — myself included — that anyone who has been subjected to repeated viewings of “Frozen” undoubtedly cannot escape the irresistible lure of the movie and its soundtrack.

But seriously, “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?”

(“It doesn’t have to be a snowman…”)

“Okay … bye.”

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I must have gotten a little dust in my eyes while thinking about the sweetly sung song.

Parents — even daddies who think they’re too tough to be moved by Disney songs — know what I’m talking about there.
