Hunter Pence's At-Bat Song is Skrillex

Hunter Pence's At-Bat Song is Skrillex

With another new baseball season underway and fans getting the chance to head back to beautiful Citizens Bank Park in South Philadelphia for the first time this spring, the question on most fans minds* this time of year is usually, "what song does [insert Phillies player] come up to bat to?"

(*After, of course, "how the hell are we going to score runs?" and "why don't you go wait in line for crab fries for me?")

Todd Zolecki -- blogger and author of the fourth installment of the Hunger Games series, "The Rotation"  -- investigated that very question and provides a full list of the Phillies walk-up/warm-up song choices.

Our favorites among the Phillies regulars include Jimmy Rollins' choice of Naughty by Nature's Uptown Anthem, Carlos Ruiz's trusty In the Air Tonight by Phil Collins, and Chase Utley's classic Kashmir by Led Zeppelin. As for the pitchers, it's hard to argue with Moby Dick/Good Times Bad Times for one Roy Halladay, or Stranglehold by Ted Nugent for Clifton Phifer Lee.

The most curious selection is that of lanky right fielder Hunter Pence. Pence is all energy all the time so it shouldn't be much of a surprise that he opted to go with dubstep sensation Skrillex -- also known as "arguably the #1 alt DJ in the world." The song is called Breakin' a Sweat and you can listen to it below.

We reached out to the foremost authority on Skrillex, Carles of HipsterRunoff, for a comment on Pence's choice, wondering obviously what it all means, but he did not respond by the time of this posting.

And here's Hunter talking about Skrillex about halfway through:

Union emotional after Maurice Edu's season-ending injury

Union emotional after Maurice Edu's season-ending injury

CHESTER, Pa. — On the eve of his comeback after missing nearly 13 months with a left tibia stress fracture and other related injuries, Union midfielder Maurice Edu fractured his left fibula on Saturday, keeping him out for the 2016 playoffs and beyond.

“I was trying to take the shot on goal and my foot got stuck in the turf,” Edu said Sunday, in his blue Union-issued suit and supported by crutches. “My ankle rolled and twisted and it kind of snapped a little bit. I heard it crack, and a lot of pain from there. I got a scan afterward, and there was a break.”

There's no timetable his return.

Edu, 30, has spent over a calendar year fighting various injuries that have kept him out of game action. His trouble began on Sept. 30, 2015, when he played through the U.S. Open Cup final with a partially torn groin and sports hernia. It was during Edu’s recovery from those injuries that he developed a stress fracture.

"A little bit frustration. A lot of frustration, to be honest," he said. "But all I can do now is get back to work, focus on the positives and make sure that my situation isn’t a distraction from the team."

Edu’s teammates were equally devastated by the news. Edu, the Union captain when healthy, is popular and well-respected in the locker room.

"I feel so bad for him," said Alejandro Bedoya, who wore a dedication to Edu under his jersey on Sunday. "He’s one of my good friends, so I was looking forward to playing alongside him. I know how hard he’s worked to get back, and to see him go out like that, it’s heartbreaking. I’m sad for his loss and I hope he stays strong."

Edu, who has been with the Union since 2014, returned to training in July and played three conditioning appearances with the Union’s USL team, Bethlehem Steel FC. He was on the bench for the Union’s last three games and was set to make his first appearance in over a year against the New York Red Bulls on Sunday, a game the Union eventually lost, 2-0 (see game story).

"We’re gutted for Mo," Union manager Jim Curtin said. "He was slated to start today. It’s real upsetting because he’s worked so hard to get back on the field. It’s been a tough 2016 for him, but I know he’ll come back stronger."

While he was visibly shaken by recent injury, Edu is driven to return.

"What happened, happened," Edu said. "I have no control over that. The only thing I do have control over is my next steps from here, how I prepare myself mentally and emotionally and how I continue to support this group."

Watch: Malcolm Jenkins saves Jon Dorenbos, who can't work his magic with bow tie

The magician himself needed help on this one.

His bow tie.

Hey, this is what teammates are for, right?

On Monday night, Eagles longsnapper and NBC's America's Got Talent star Jon Dorenbos emceed safety Malcolm Jenkins' third annual Blitz, Bow Ties and Bourbon charity event, which raises money for Philadelphia's youth and underserved communities.

Dorenbos, quite the wizard with his hands and card tricks, couldn't solve the bow tie.

“I had no clue,” Dorenbos said in an interview with CSN's John Clark. "In fact, this is the first bow tie I’ve ever worn.”

Jenkins had his back. Watch the Eagles' leader go to work and save Dorenbos in the video above.
