Commodores senior wide receiver C.J. Duncan, wearing a Braves No. 7 Swanson jersey, says in the video that “we really appreciate the new sound system.” The players then started dancing with House of Pain’s “Jump Around” blaring over the new sound system.
Swanson replied on his Twitter account, tweeting “Once a VandyBoy, always a VandyBoy.”
Swanson, 23, was selected by the Diamondbacks with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2015 draft and was traded to his hometown Braves later that year. Swanson led the Commodores to the championship series of the 2015 College World Series, where they were defeated by Virginia.
