While Edwin Diaz’s performance captivated audiences, St. Louis Cardinals reserve Ryan Helsley’s walk to the mound could give him a chance.
In the past, the New York Yankees’ Mariano Rivera had one of the best performances for a finishing pitcher when he jogged to the mound to Metallica’s “Enter Sandman.” In recent years, Edwin Diaz has been praised by the New York Mets for using Blasterjaxx and Timmy Trumpet’s “Narcos” as his opening song. As a matter of fact, Trumpet actually played Diaz live from Citi Field to the Hill!
One entrance baseball fans may overlook is that of St. Louis Cardinals closer Ryan Helsley. During the team’s Sept. 6 game against the Washington Nationals, the lights went red and Helsley sang the AC/DC hit “Hells Bells.”
See for yourself.
Cardinals are approaching Ryan Helsley’s new Hells Bells gig
The lighting. The ringing of the bells. That was great, to be honest.
Helsley’s entrance with the bright red lights debuted in the aforementioned game. Imagine standing in a circle on the deck and seeing the lights turn red and your opponent emerge from the bullpen.
How did Helsley fare? Well, he finished the game after hitting a batter and allowing one hit on 21 pitches to secure the 4-1 win.
This year, Helsley now holds a .98 ERA, a .70 WHIP and 14 saves while hitting 81 batters in 55.1 innings.
The Cardinals are in first place in the NL Central by a sizable margin, meaning baseball fans will likely be able to see Helsley’s performance in a postseason game at Busch Stadium broadcast.
