Mike Francesa’s Weird ‘Batting Stance’ Pose for Photos Put To Music (Video)

You’ve surely seen it every time WFAN’s Mike Francesa poses for a photo: his unusual “batting stance.” Well, now it’s been put to music.

Is there a more appropriate song to put to this lineup of Mike Francesa photos?

I think not. 

You know him well, WFAN’s Mike Francesa who’s been a New York City afternoon sports drive staple since the late 1980s. Through the years he’s not only acquired a following for his brash and egotistical behavior, but has reeled in a new generation thanks to yesteryear’s fathers forcing their kids to listen to AM radio.

We all know his quirks. One of them is his weird “batting style stance” he throws up every time he poses for a photo.


Twitter’s @SportsFunhouse decided to put his batting stance photo pose to the most appropriate piece of music of all-time (video above).

It’s summertime so, naturally, you won’t hear Mike on the airwaves. But when he comes back in the fall, it’ll be his last go-around as the Sports Pope is retiring come the new year.
