Bryce Harper used a variety of walk-up songs in 2014, including Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse,” Moby’s “Flower” and Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off.” A new season calls for new tunes, so Harper solicited suggestions from fans last month.

One person suggested the theme song from “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” which needs to happen, but no one, at least on Twitter, suggested Frank Sinatra.
Yet here was Harper, stepping to the plate in the fourth inning Monday at Nationals Park to “The Best is Yet to Come.”
Harper blasted the second pitch he saw from Bartolo Colon for a solo home run, his third career homer on opening day.
Cheryl Nichols of the District Sports Page has started building this season’s master list of Nationals walk-up/entrance songs. Harper also used his favorite, “Flower,” and “Wagon Wheel” by Darius Rucker on Monday. And in the second best walk-up-related news of opening day, Aaron Barrett still enters to “The Bear Song” from “Dumb and Dumber.”
