Philadelphia Phillies' Ken Giles Brings Avenged Sevenfold To The Mound.

Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Ken Giles chose Avenged Sevenfold’s “Hail to the King” to blare through Citizens Bank Park’s loud speakers as he walked up to the mound for the first time in his career. Speaking of why he chose that song, That’s been in my head since spring training,” Giles said. “It’s one of my favorite song that I listen to everyday.” MLB players who have used Avenged Sevenfold’s song as their walk up music include Daric Barton (ex-Oakland Athletics, ex-Toronto Blue Jays), Rex Brothers (Colorado Rockies), Trevor Rosenthal (St. Louis Cardinals), and Brett Cecil (Toronto Blue Jays).
