OAKLAND, Calif. (KGO) --Leave it to Oakland A's outfielder Josh Reddick to buck baseball convention. The free spirit is now using "Careless Whisper" by Wham as his walk-up song.
Players usually choose hard rock or hip hop music for the music played as a batter approaches the plate.
The fans seemed to like the change, swaying to the soulful sax.
Reddick's game liked it too; he had two hits last night, including a home run.
Reddick is the same guy who went most of last season without shaving as part of a bet.
