All the Mets will be using Beastie Boys as their walk-up music for Arizona game

Earlier today word came out that Beastie Boys founding member, and music icon, Adam Yauch, aka MCA, passed away at the age of 47 after a nearly three year battle with cancer.  Yauch was born in Brooklyn and if you’re a fan of the legendary rap group you know they were proud of their heritage, and often rapped about their New York roots.

To honor Yauch, the New York Mets starters have decided to use strictly songs from the Beastie Boys catalogue as their walk-up music for their Friday game against the Arizona Diamondbacks.  No word on which songs which players are using, but according to Anthony DiComo, Mets beat writer for MLB.com, David Wright has requested Brass Monkey, from the group’s classic Licensed to Ill album.

And the bit about Wright…

Say what you will about the Mets, but this is one classy gesture from the organization.
