HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Walk-up music in Major League Baseball is the signature element of a batter's appearance at the plate.
As unique as a batting stance or a snowflake, these songs are the extension of the ballplayer's personality.
These songs can range from the hype-up, pump-up stadium anthem, to the simple classic rock song, to the smooth crossover R&B hit.
Here are the songs that are pumping each Astro up to the batter's box or, for the pitchers, out to the mound:
