Mike Zunino – C – 24 years old – Cape Coral, FL

The Mariners’ backstop is a well-known country music fan, who consistently chooses a hit country song for his walkup song. Last season he was rocking the latest hit from Florida Georgia Line, and in 2015 he has picked “Just Gettin’ Started” by Jason Aldean.

C. Personally, I am not a huge country music guy, but this song does have a few redeeming qualities. It touches on all the typical “country” stereotypes; pickup trucks, beer, pretty ladies and beer again. It has a party feel to it, but I do not think it will be a big hit with the Mariners’ fan base. Zunino has stayed close to his southern roots, but this song ranks low on the list of M’s walkup tunes.. C. Seattle Mariners. MIKE ZUNINO
