CLOSING NUMBERS

The Brewers' addition of Trevor Hoffman has brought another level of excitement to Miller Park this season. The blaring of the closer's trademark entrance song - "Hell's Bells" by AC/DC - brings the home crowd to a fever pitch.

Here is a look at some other notable entrance music:

Mariano Rivera, New York Yankees - "Enter Sandman" by Metallica. Not surprisingly, heavy metal bands tend to dominate the playlist for the high-energy job of nailing down a victory in the ninth inning. Billy Wagner also made use of the song.

Jonathan Papelbon, Boston Red Sox - "I'm Shipping Up to Boston" by Dropkick Murphys. The tune rose to prominence in Martin Scorsese's Boston-set film "The Departed," so it's a fitting choice for Beantown's hard-driving closer.

Francisco Rodriguez, New York Mets - "Sandungueoso" by Tego Calderon. One of game's greatest closers, he also gets points for originality in song selection.

Tom "Flash" Gordon - "Theme from 'Flash Gordon' " by Queen. Back when he was closing games with several teams, the current Diamondback probably didn't have much choice in the matter.

Derrick Turnbow - "Fuel" by Metallica. Before his spectacular flameout, the ex- Brewers stopper roared out to this number by a band that probably holds the career record for most entrance music.

Eric Gagn? - "Welcome To The Jungle" by Guns N' Roses. It's hard to remember, but Gagn? once got Dodger Stadium rocking with the L.A. band's classic.
