“It was a collaborative list, and if players have a song they want to hear they can submit it,” said freshman Luke Williams.
It is unknown at the time if the playlist is public, but maybe with some convincing these diamond DJ’s will let us all enjoy the home run hits without sitting outside during practice. Maybe that was their plan all along? Whether you are a fan of baseball or a fan of Luke Bryan, the baseball field has become a source of buzz and controversy about campus.
“It’s mostly country music,” said junior Ariel Kaylor. “I like it, but I think it’s odd that’s the music they play. I like hearing it whenever I walk across campus.”

Love it or hate it, it does not seem like the baseball team has any intentions of turning down the tunes any time soon.
