A GIF and a Tune: Melky Cabrera and Rimsky-Korsakov

After hitting a dinger, Melky Cabrera proceeded to proceed through the dugout, giving false high fives all around.

In honor of Melky’s grand promenade, I offer the dulcet tones of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s Procession of the Nobles.

Watch:

Noble, indeed.

Great stuff. I was expecting “Flight of the Bumblebee” but this works just fine.

I’d love to get a list of the songs you use for these gifs, and any other suggested classical music

Un-impressed dugout – truly one of the greats. Really best performed on a rookies first HR, ideally on his first game after being called up and the first HR of the game — “act like you’ve done it before rook!”
