The Boston Red Sox have a nice storied history of bench players exploring their musical gifts while not taking part in the action on the field, specifically in the cases of a couple different “bullpen bands” that played instruments like “the water bottles” and “the spoons.” Before their game tonight against the A’s, however, a talented new duo emerged from the Sox dugout with one key improvement on Boston musicians past: actual instruments!

With Eduardo Rodriguez on the drum and Brock Holt playing the tin can, the Sox led off the evening with a pretty decent groove.

Hanley Ramirez, at least, loves himself some percussion.


This is cute and fun and more teams should try it.
