The 2014 Orioles Walk-Up Song Project- UPDATE 1

This walk-up song project is something that I've enjoyed doing this the past three years (201320122011), although I admitted slacked off on it last year. But I am once again going to try to keep track of the songs that the Orioles players use as their walk-up/warm-up music. I really stayed on top of the songs in 2011, and updated the list six times throughout that year. In both 2012 & 2013, I only wrote the one, original post, but the funny thing is that I continued to take notes on the songs used throughout the season, and then just never got around to writing posts about the updates.

Since this list is something that changes any time a player is added to the roster, or they want to change things around, the list is fluid, but here is what I have at this point in the season. The Orioles website also has a list up, but some of the players shown are injured, so I can't say how accurate it might be right now. From my own observations at games of 12 players on that list, only 6 of those currently playing for the O's seem to have the correct song listed from the O's link, so I am taking the Orioles list with a major grain of salt.

If anyone has any information to add or update from what's listed below, please let me know!

*I attended Wednesday's O's game and have amendments for Britton, Davis & Gonzalez
