Your browser does not support iframes.Oakland Athletics right fielder Josh Reddick recently changed his walk-up music to "Careless Whisper" by Wham!, and the reaction by A's players and fans has been extremely positive.Reddick switched his walk-up music to the 80s classic, using it for the first time during Monday night's game against Chicago. As "Careless Whisper" played when he walked to the plate for his at-bats in Tuesday night's game, some of Reddick's teammates could be seen bobbing their heads in the dugout, and groups of fans could be seen waving their arms in the air to the slow rhythm of the music.Of course, the positive reception is likely connected to Reddick's performance at the plate since he made the switch. After getting two hits (including a triple) in Monday night's game, Reddick followed up with a single and a home run in Tuesday night's game, helping the A's beat the White Sox in both games.It seems to be working, so Reddick needs to stick with it now. In the meantime, George Michael should keep an eye out for an invite to an A's game in the near future.Video via MLB.

“Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go” would be a great entrance song for a closer.

One of the coolest things in baseball is the walk-up/entrance song. Batters get one as they approach the plate and so do closers when they make the jog to the mound. Typically the song is something that is going to pump up the crowd and the player; rap and rock songs are pretty common. Tuesday night Oakland A's outfielder Josh Reddick--being the unique guy that he is opted to...

On Monday, the Oakland A’s outfielder changed his walk-up music to Wham!’s “Careless Whisper.” Now Careless Whisper isn’t your typical at-bat music. Usually you […]
Josh Reddick either has an odd sense of humor or is a huge George Michael fan, because last night the Oakland A’s outfielder used the singer’s tender slow jam “Careless Whisper” as his walk-up song. It seemed to be an odd fit considering Reddick is known for his grizzly facial hair and love of wrestling, not sensual sax riffs.
But, hey, you can’t judge a book by its cover...
A's fans and teammates all seem to dig Josh Reddick's new walk-up song, "Careless Whisper."

Oakland Athletics outfielder Josh Reddick upped the ante on walk-up songs during Monday’s game against the Chicago White Sox, choosing the most classic of slow jams.
The lover of all things manly — including his grizzly facial hair and his penchant for wrestling — showed off his tender side as he casually strolled to the plate with George Michael’s “Careless Whisper”...
Josh Reddick must have lost a bet, right? That was the only rational explanation for why a major league ballplayer would risk ridicule by choosing Wham!’s “Careless Whisper” as his walk-up music.
Of course, maybe we shouldn’t use the word “rational” in association with Reddick, who has previously made interesting choices in beard length and TV interview attire. The Oakland...

He is known for his “Reddickulous” offensive arm and glove, but on Monday night at O.co Coliseum, the right-fielder was known for his walk up music. What did he choose?
How about George Michael’s Careless Whisper?
How did it work out for him?
Well, he finished against the White Sox hitting 2-3 with an RBI and a triple. A .667 batting...
Baseball has long been a sport of superstitions and traditions over the long, seemingly endless seasons, and the latest example of the lengths players will go to in getting their bats hot again comes to us from Oakland Athletics outfielder Josh Reddick. On Monday, Reddick chose the George Michael (or Wham!) slow jam “Careless Whisper” as his new at-bat music...
Yesterday we told you that Oakland A’s outfielder Josh Reddick has – for some reason or another – changed his walk-up song to George Michael’s sensual hit “Careless Whisper.” As you can see in the video below, it already seems to be a huge hit among Athletics fans.
Lose yourself to that sax riff, son.

Excellent walkup-music choice by A's outfielder Josh Reddick. Looks like this is the next big movement in Oakland. You've got to appreciate Reddick's sense of humor. Can't help but to laugh when Wham! pours out of the O.co Coliseum speaker. Seems like the A's fans and Reddicks teammates are really taking a liking to the...
The Oakland A's are doing things the right way. They are young, exciting to watch, and they are winning. They are also a little bit on the weird side...and Josh Reddick is leading the charge.It's amazing what winning can do for public opinion. If the A's were 10 games back and on their way to another season where they are eliminated by the beginning of August, people...
