Gerardo Parra sure knows how to get Nats Park on its feet.
Since June, Parra's walk-up song has been "Baby Shark," and the fans go crazy each time he comes up to bat.
Tuesday night's win over the Colorado Rockies was no exception:

Parra chose "Baby Shark" as his walk-up song during the Nationals' June 19 series against the Philadelphia Phillies when he was battling a bit of a slump and was looking to change things up.
“I wanted to put on something different,” Parra said to NBC Sports Washington after he broke out of his slump with an RBI double in the Nationals' June 19 win over the Philadelphia Phillies. “My [two-year-old daughter Aaliyah Victoria] loves that song. Before the game, I tried merengue, reggaeton, hip-hop, then I said, ‘You know what, I want to put in Baby Shark.’ I'm happy for that.”
Since Parra switched things up with "Baby Shark" June 19, his batting average has improved from a .217 to a .237.

It's safe to say that Para's walk-up song won't be changing any time soon.
P.S., "Shark Week" begins Sunday, July 28 on the Discovery Channel.
