Washington Nationals batting music

When Major League Baseball players step up to bat, they usually get a signature piece of music to announce them. This entrance music is called walk-up music.
I attended the Washington Nationals home game against the Colorado Rockies today and kept track of Nationals players’ walk-up music using Shazam on my iPhone 4.
Here’s what I recorded for each player:

Roger Bernadina – “Take You Higher” by Goodwill & Hook N Sling
Ian Desmond – “Warriors” by Ky-Mani
Ian Desmond – “One Sixteen” by Trip Lee, featuring KB & Andy Mineo
Steve Lombardozzi – “Cinderella Man” by Eminem
Chris Marrero – “Don’t Stop the Party” by Pitbull, featuring TJR
Anthony Rendon – “Still D.R.E.” by Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre
Craig Stammen – “Pump It Up” by Joe Budden
Kurt Suzuki – “One Drop” by Bob Marley & the Wailers
Kurt Suzuki – “Night Nurse” by Gregory Isaacs
Chad Tracy – “Wagon Wheel” by Darius Rucker
Jayson Werth – “The Walking Dead Theme Song”
Jayson Werth – “Warehouse” by Dave Matthews Band
Ryan Zimmerman – “Radioactive” by Imagine Dragons
Ryan Zimmerman – “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up)” by Fall Out Boy
Ryan Zimmerman – “Whatever You Like” by T.I.

This lines up pretty well with earlier accounts of Nationals player walk-up music selections. See reports by District Sports Page, Washingtonian and
