What is the song they play at Mets home games when Edwin Díaz enters from the bullpen?
The Mets closer is throwing fire every time he steps up to the mound, but fans are already fired up when they hear his walk-up song.
Edwin Díaz is having a terrific season with a terrific Mets team, but he is also doing so in style. A video of him walking out of the bullpen and into the field in this week’s series against Atlanta has gone viral as everyone wants to know which song is being played in Citi Field as the crowd roars him on.
A trumpet roars for Díaz
SNY, the TV producer for Mets home games, followed Díaz as he stepped out of the bullpen after warming up. The Puerto Rican closer, 28, had the same mission he has succeeded in so many times this season for the Mets: pitch a good nine inning to get the save and the win for his team. As the TV crew stayed silent, everyone got to see what music Díaz walks out to, and how impressive it is.
That song, “Narco” by Blasterjaxx and Timmy Trumpet, pushes an already excited crowd to the top each time Díaz pitches. SNY got a great shot of him running towards the mound as everyone gets ready to see fastballs over 100mph and wicked sliders. Díaz is one of the best closers in the league, if not the best, and he also gets credit for choosing such an electrifying song for his entrance.
Díaz crushes as Mets dominate
The Puerto Rican got the save by striking out the side in the ninth inning of that 5-2 Mets win over the Braves, the fourth in their five games series. The National League New York team are now 13-2 in their last 15 games, 71-39 for the season and 7.0 games ahead of Atlanta for the division lead. Díaz has a 1.39 ERA this season, worth 2.4 WAR, an incredible figure for a reliever, even for a closer as good as him.
