There’s no official word yet on whether Michael will show, but there has been contact and the A’s are hopeful they can pull it off. Which would be amazing, and pretty darn cool. Michael, who is English, presumably has little background in baseball and probably hadn’t heard of Josh Reddick until recently, but the Oakland outfielder has brought Michael’s sax-heavy ballad “Careless Whisper” back into cultural relevance.
Reddick is using the song as his walkup music – a major shift from Reddick’s usual WWE themes and country music. Everyone is getting into it, teammates, fans. It’s just delightful.
Only in Oakland (in the best sense of the phrase).
