Duda not a fan of 'Camptown Races'

Lucas Duda often hears the song "Camptown Races" in visiting ballparks. However, the crowd participation rarely reaches the level it did on Wednesday night at Turner Field.

The Braves employ a highly entertaining organist, Matthew Kaminski, who played the song multiple times during Duda at-bats. The crowd widely participated, singing the "Dooooh, dah, Dooooh, dah."

The reserved Duda wasn't overly amused.

"I've heard it for so long, it doesn't even matter," said Duda, who started at first base. "It stopped being funny like the 300th time I heard it."
