Nothing says baseball like hotdogs, beer, and a stadium full of cheering fans – whose cheers are matched only by the sounds of the stadium organ.  Just ask Matthew Kaminski, Organ Player for the Atlanta Braves. Since joining the Braves in 2009, he’s earned a reputation for the his highly personalized — and often playful — introductory music he gives players up to bat. Many of his best ideas come from Braves fans, who inundate him with their suggestions on Twitter. He joins The Takeaway with some intro themes for some public figures.
