KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Red Sox had just claimed a 9-2 win over the Royals on Wednesday night at Kauffman Stadium, and the music was blaring in the visitors clubhouse.
Van Halen’s “Jump” was the choice this time around, the kind of tune that seemed fit for the polyester-wearing baseball players of the early 1980s, but certainly not this group.
“It’s a nice change, isn’t it?” Red Sox outfielder J.D. Drew said.
