Thirty-two songs are in the running to become the newest sixth inning tune played at Kauffman Stadium during Kansas City Royals games. The voting will take place at Kauffman and fans can vote once per day. Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star provided the match-ups and the days they’ll be competing, which you can check out here.
Those of you who don’t like change can vote for the classic “Friends in Low Places” by Garth Brooks, which is competing on Monday against “Don’t Stop Believin’” by Journey. Those two will battle it out when the Kansas City Royals take on the Tampa Bay Rays.
Other song choices are “All Star” by Smash Mouth, “Summer of 69″ by Bryan Adams, “Kansas City” by The Beatles, “Kansas City” by Fats Domino, “You Belong With Me” by Taylor Swift, and “Walk of Life” by Dire Straits.
Surprisingly, Lorde’s “Royals” is not included in the match-ups. The song has drawn attention to the Kansas City Royals organization since its release last summer.
If you ask me, I wouldn’t mind hearing “I Won’t Back Down” by Tom Petty. Great song and it would be perfect to belt out during a game. That’s just me though. Many people will probably want to keep singing away to Garth Brooks, which is fine too. It is tradition after all.
