Dodgers Music Tastes on Display as the Fate of the World is in Their Hands

Clayton Kershaw’s “Ping Pong 4 Purpose” ping pong tournament is always good for entertaining content, and yesterday was no different. Dodgers players and Hollywood celebrities descended on Dodger Stadium to raise money for the Kershaw’s Challenge charity, and the Dodgers’ social media team showed up to ask the important question…

If you had to sing a song word-for-word to save the world, what song would you choose?

Mario Lopez comes out of the gate strong with “Happy Birthday,” and Dave Roberts counters with a song he’s heard thousands of times during his baseball career: The Star-Spangled Banner.

David Price and Justin Turner both went with “Regulators” by Warren G, so perhaps a mid-30s duet is in order. Maybe the biggest surprise of the night was Hanser Alberto going with “God Bless the USA,” but now that he brought it up, I’d love to see that performance.

Trea Turner answered in the more Trea Turner fashion imaginable, literally just picking the song that was playing on the stadium speakers at the time. Clayton Kershaw surprised his wife Ellen by choosing an Usher song, while Ellen said she’d probably have to go with something from the Frozen soundtrack.

A recurring theme with Max Muncy, Will Smith, and Evan Phillips was that they don’t know any songs and their significant others know songs by Aaron Carter and/or Justin Bieber. Which now has me thinking a karaoke night with Muncy, Smith, and Phillips forced to sing songs from Kellie Muncy’s playlist could be fun.
