Wylde spoke to ESPN Front Row about his delight at having his version chosen:
“It was really cool to watch baseball on ESPN and hear my family and friends say ‘Hey, that’s your song they’re playing.’ I won this thing, and it was all about my love for baseball and my love for music. To the ESPN family and the Black Label Society family, keep bleeding black. Thanks for your vote. For all the other artists, it’s all music.”
