Toronto Blue Jays Left-Handed starting pitcher Yusei Kikuchi has a unique song that he likes to play play every time he strikes out an opposing batter. It's a hit by Lisa Loeb and she is starting to get more and more attention for it.

This one's for Lisa Loeb 👏

今日も良い菊池雄星デー!

The reasoning behind the use of the song is because the first lines of the tune sound like the first name of Kikuchi.
Omg. I just got it. "Yusei" is pronounced like the first two word of my song. Doh. ❤️🤦🏻‍♂️
The song "Stay (I Missed You)", Written and performed by Loeb begins with a poignantly sung "you say" which, as Loeb pointed out, is why it's played for Yusei Kikuchi.

Kukuchi loves that the fans get involved with it, and he loves the fact that it has become part of his trademark.
"I love it. It's my favorite moment." On Friday (May 31), Loeb shared the interview, calling it "so cool."

Did you know this song before Yusei used it as his strikeout celebration?
