Mötley Crüe ruins a baseball game

Posted by on August 11, 2013

The Arizona Diamondbacks were already losing, but when their sound guy accidentally played a second of the intro of Mötley Crüe’s “Kickstart My Heart” yesterday, it startled pitcher J.J. Putz enough for him to spike the ball during the ninth inning. There are a couple things that are great about it: first, the pitch itself. Secondly, the sound guy pointing to himself and admitting that it was his fault. And lastly, the announcers, who have no idea what it was, laughing that Mick Mars’ whammy bar theatrics “sounds like a cow.” Interestingly enough, no Mets or the Diamondbacks players use the song as their walkoff music.

    Hardly “Motley Crue Ruins a Baseball Game”. One pitch, thrown as a ball, nobody on base, no impact on outcome of game, due to error from sound booth. Mildly amusing, especially after seeing it 19 times in that video.

    The members of Motley Crue were nowhere in the ballpark, so I don’t think they ruined the baseball game. Now, their SONG maybe, or the person operating the PA system, but that’s about it…
