‘He’ll outrun the cheetah in the Cincinnati Zoo’: Elly De La Cruz gets tribute song

Elly De La Cruz has garnered many accolades in his short big league career, and Monday he received yet another, this time in the form of a tribute song.

Singer-songwriter Dan Bern, whose songs are often played on the Tony Kornheiser Show, dropped his latest on Monday in honor of the Reds young star.

Featuring lyrics such as “Fastest man alive, shortstop 6-foot-5, this Red he cannot lose, Elly De La Cruz,” and “Hits the ball really, really, really, really hard, I’m thinking you probably want to have his rookie card, find a ’52 Mantle and you won’t sing the blues, or a 2023 Elly De La Cruz,” Bern dropped a version on Twitter with a new verse since it premiered on Kornheiser’s show.
