Match the hitter with at-bat music

Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Mike Cameron, 36, is either indecisive or very picky about his at-bat music because he has twice as many songs as the number of teams he has played for in his 15-year major league career.

Mike Cameron
Mike Cameron, master of the at-bat music selections.

The Brewers list the following songs as Cameron's walk-up music: "Go Hard" by DJ Khaled, "American Dreamin'" by Jay-Z, "One" by Fat Joe, "Black Ice" by Goodie Mob, "Put On" by Young Jeezy, "Here I Am" by Rick Ross, "Da Rockwilder" by Method Man & Redman, "Hustler's Anthem" by Busta Rhymes, "Universal Mind Control" by Common, "All I Know" by Julian Marley, "That's Gangsta" by Bun B, "My Life, Your Entertainment" by T.I.

If you're keeping score, that's 12 songs for Cameron, who also has played for the Padres, Mets, Mariners, Reds and White Sox.

We feature all Brewers -- but not Cameron -- in this week's Batter's Hit Box game, above, which features some noteworthy choices.

  • One player has chosen the ever-popular "Your Love" by The Outfield that we wrote about in Week 5.
  • Fans of 1980s music will be disappointed that Brewers outfielder Corey Hart doesn't play his namesake's "Sunglasses At Night."

    Don't switch the blade
    On the guy in shades, oh-no

  • And one star player uses a song that was written about him.
