You know you've made it as a baseball sensation when your walkup song is dedicated to you.
That is now the case with Yasiel Puig, the Los Angeles Dodgers phenom who has taken the league by storm this year. Puig, who is batting .351 with 107 hits and 14 home runs in 80 games this year, is one of the favorites to win the National League's Rookie of the Year award.
As if those numbers weren't validation enough for Puig's performance, a new song by the Los Angeles rapper Mr. Criminal (aka Roberto Fabian Garcia) showcases just how huge Puig has become. The hip hop jam will be Puig's walkup song at Dodger Stadium.
Judging by a photo on Pugi's Instagram, it appears Puig and Garcia are friends:
Below is the music video and a sampling of the lyrics for "Yasiel Puig."
