Baseball Stadium D.J. Ejected From Game

If you've listened to my (alleged) show for any time at all, then you most likely know for that the last 15-plus years, I moonlight in the summer as the P.A. announcer/D.J. for the Yakima Bears at County Stadium.

The job requires not only announcing batters as the come to home plate, but to try and add an element of entertainment for the spectators with appropriate musical selections - even if it's at the expense of the opposing team.  Hell, ESPECIALLY if it's at their expense!

I'll play Linda Ronstadt's "You're No Good" when announcing the visitor's line-up.  I LOVE to play Rita Coolidge's "Don't Cry Out Loud" when the out-of-town team's manager comes to argue a call.  When the enemy team has to pull their pitcher from the game, I will cue up Tom Petty's "Don't Come Around Here No More."

Even the umpires are not immune.  I still get a kick out of spinning the theme to TV's "Odd Couple" or "Devil With A Blue Dress" when the umps (they wear blue clothing and work in pairs in the N.W.L.) come out onto the field.

Maybe I should re-think that.

A stadium D.J. (for lack of a better term) in Florida was literally thrown out of the game by an umpire for a song he played over the public address system the other day at a game in Daytona!

Listen and watch the "offensive" music after the jump.
