When Will Smith first appeared in the majors in 2019, fans couldn’t wait to see the heralded catcher in action for the Dodgers. On May 28, 2019, he walked to the plate for the first time at a major leaguer and was appropriately accompanied by “Yo Home to Bel-Air” — more commonly known as The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song which was written by Will Smith… the artist.
Since that date, Will Dills Smith has walked up to the plate to the tune of the Fresh Prince. However, that may soon be changing. SportsNet LA reporter Kirsten Watson asked Will about the song and revealed some potentially devastating news for some. He may be changing the iconic tune.
I don’t know yet, my wife wants me to change it but it’s been working so far so I don’t know. I’m still undecided.
Of course, fans had some strong feelings about the possible change of the iconic intro
Dont you dare

But, in the end, can we all agree on this?

There’s no arguing with this logic.
