Just when it seems Edwin Diaz’s walkout music couldn’t get any more epic, the New York Mets have upped the ante going directly to the source of the sound — Australian DJ Timmy Trumpet.
The musician will reportedly make the trip to New York on Sunday, Aug. 28, to play Diaz in live against the Colorado Rockies.
Diaz has taken the MLB by storm this season with 26 saves and 91 strikeouts, backing up his impressive field performance with a classic rendition of “Narco” by Dutch duo Blasterjaxx and Timmy Trumpet. It’s a fiery song by itself, but the live trumpets are an experience second-to-none and a fan-favorite of the Citi Field faithful.
The Aug. 28 matchup will be the final contest of a four-game series in which the NL East-leading Mets should be comfortably favored over the worst team in the NL West.
It remains unclear what the Mets plan to do if Diaz doesn’t enter the game, but there’s certainly a lot of hype around this collaboration.

The New York Giants seemed to be joining the fad, playing “Narco” during practice in East Rutherford, N.J on Aug. 9
