No. 20 Rebs top ASU 8-1

BLOG: After spending rainy weekend in the Lone Star State, the No. 20 Rebels (1-1 overall) have returned sunny Oxford, Miss., to host Arkansas State (0-2) in the home opener.

First pitch is set for 3 p.m.

Sure, it’s nice for the team to return home so the home fans can checkout the squad but the real reason folks are excited for today’s home opener is so we can hear each player’s at-bat/warmup song. Duh.

Thanks to the folks at Ole Miss, we’ve already got the rundown of songs. Instead of just listing the songs, I figured I’d take it a step further and hook y’all up with the YouTube.com links. If you’re like me and don’t know the majority of the songs, the link comes in handy. (DISCLAIMER: This should be common sense, but some of these songs have words that may or may not be appropriate for young ears. You’ve been warned.)
