Oakland A’s Daric Barton Has A “Nightmare.”

It’s no surprise that the Oakland A’s first base-men/catcher Daric Barton is an Avenged Sevenfold fan as interviews dating back to 2005 reveal that. What’s even more awesome? He’s been using the brand new single “Nightmare” as his ‘at-bat’ song!

2005 interview:
Blez: That’s pretty impressive. Favorite band?
Barton: Avenged Sevenfold. They’re a group out of Huntington Beach. They’re a heavy metal group.
Blez: Do you like Korn too? They’re from HB.
Barton: Back in the day, I liked their music. My favorite song by Avenged Sevenfold is I Won’t See You Tonight, Part 1.

Thanks to Daniel who attended the Giants/A’s game a few weeks back and remembered this!

I love how he kinda disregards the Korn statement and continues to talk about A7X lmao I’m anticipating the new Korn album this summer as well, but NIGHTMARE is #1 priority :)
