The Philadelphia Phillies were one of 19 MLB teams that did not select anyone in…
The Philadelphia Phillies stomped the Braves in the NLDS, and had to get the tunes going in the clubhouse. Having had the same victory playlist for the past two seasons courtesy of Garrett Stubbs, the squad has put their own new twist on an old classic.
The Phillies added some call and response lyrics to ‘Dixieland Delight’ and updated it to include their most recent opponent:
Listen to those boys singing their heart out once again. They are the songbirds of their generation, and we are privileged to have a front row seat to their ascension in both baseball and music.
This collection of songs should be studied in every music class from local elementary schools to the finest universities. Berklee College of Music has already added it to the curriculum*, so I expect other top-tier music programs to follow suit.
They really are just a group of guys being dudes. Who among us doesn’t hate the Braves? It sounds like some buddies at the bar having too much fun, and that’s what this Phillies team is all about.
Hopefully in a couple weeks they’ll be singing “Fuck the Snakes” en route to the World Series.
*Berklee College of Music has not confirmed this is any way.
