Just when you thought you’d heard your last “doo doo doo,” the “Baby Shark” song has taken on the Big Leagues. If you’re a Texas Rangers fan, get ready to hear it even more, because it’s practically a member of the team now.

Shortstop Elvis Andrus debuted a new walk-on song for MLB Opening Day. Pinkfong’s “Baby Shark” blasted over the P.A. system as Andrus walked up to the plate. The song selection was met with some raised eyebrows, but Andrus explained that he had a very good reason for picking the song: it’s his toddler son’s favorite!

Elvis Emilio, Andrus’ son, turns two this July.

“If you don’t like it, you better get used to it, it’s not going away,” he said this week, according to The Associated Press. “Hopefully ‘Baby Shark’ can hit well… At least get me one hit a day, it’s going to stay.”
