Fender Sent to the Locker Room- But That's a Good Thing

In addition to the questionable smells and perhaps words you wouldn't say to your Mom, this is what you'll also find in the Arizona Diamondbacks locker room: a Fender Player's Lounge filled with instruments.

"The Fender Player's Lounge has been quite popular with our players as well as some national recording artists that have stopped by to check out a D-backs game," said Shaun Rachau, the D-backs' vice president of communications. "Trace Adkins and his band performed after one of our games in May and couldn't believe the musical equipment Fender set up for us."

An Arizona Republic reporter recently wrote about hearing the Rick Derringer classic "Rock and Roll Hoochie Koo" blasting from the room, to find it was being played by pitchers Brandon Webb and Brandon Medders.
