62 Clean Warm-Up Songs and Playlist Apps to Get Your Players Pumped


If there’s one question we here at Travel Ball Parents get more than any other, it’s “Can you recommend some good warm up songs?” So, by popular demand, here’s our latest collection of warm up and walk up songs (in no particular order) to get your team’s energy levels pumping. We’ve done our best to vet each of them for profanity, making sure that clean* versions exist.

But, before we get to the song list, here are a few considerations for team deejays to always keep in mind.

  1. Keep it clean and classy! There’s no bigger turn-off than to hear kids warming up to songs with profanity and explicit lyrics blaring through the speakers. Especially, knowing that one of the parents is in charge of the music.
  2. Remember, it’s a baseball game, not a concert. When the game is in play, the music should stop.
  3. Be considerate of your competition and other teams playing games within earshot of your speakers. If you’re getting looks and comments from others, it’s probably time to lower the volume.
  4. Don’t force it! Make sure all (or at least most) players and parents are okay with having warm-up and/or walk-up songs. We once had a parent who insisted on blaring tunes at every opportunity, not realizing that nearly the whole team found their selections to be obnoxiously distracting.

And now onto the music list (which was compiled with input from dozens of players, coaches, parents and a few random strangers).

*Clean – Everyone is going to have their own definition of “clean” music. I did my best to go through lyrics and weed out profanity, drugs and strong sexual content. But I may have overlooked something that you find unforgivably offensive. If you come across one that you feel doesn’t belong, then shoot me a quick message.

    Music is just entropy during the games and can lead to issues. I guess that is why over 4 years of travel ball I have only seen/heard it one time, it was left behind at rec/travel all stars.

      Great list, I started to animate the games as well during my son’s tournaments. I came up with another set of music and using this very simple app to play and stop the music at the rhythm of the referees. http://basketdad.laurentbutre.com/
