Watch MLB Player Sing “I Miss You” from blink-182 with a fan in the stands
Blink-182’s “I Miss You” represents an outpouring that has become an almost universal sentiment. Namely, the 2004 Californian pop-punks hit transcended its station as a light rock diversion and became an anthem for emo listeners around the world, even those who play major baseball.
But this is the song second verse, the one led by now estranged blink guitarist and co-singer Tom DeLonge, who often receives the most love. Last week (July 10), Cincinnati Reds outfielder Jesse Winker took some time out in a game to sing that signature section of the song with a fan in the stands. And, yes, the oft-copied DeLonge inflection was present.

It wasn’t fair any fan with whom Winker has chosen to duet – according to Cincinnati.com, Winker’s singing partner was none other than the 7-year-old son of Reds right fielder Nick Castellanos, Liam.
The “I Miss You” rally appears to have paid off for Winker, the Reds and Cincinnati fans. That night, the team beat the Milwaukee Brewers 4-3 in their third encounter with the club of the 2021 season.
Hoppus, the blink-182 bassist and co-vocalist who co-founded the group with DeLonge in 1992, revealed his cancer diagnosis last month. In response, DeLonge and blink batsman Travis Barker both offered their support. Hoppus has since made several updates on his treatment and shared his first bald photo.
