PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — One local Pirates fan has come up with a strategy for fans attending the Pirates’ Wild Card game Wednesday.

And he’s hoping it’ll give the Bucs a big advantage.

Bill Ferari came up with a list of chants — one for each inning while the Cubs are pitching.

He’s trying to spread the word and get as many fans as he can on board.

He’s hoping his plan will be enough to rattle Jake Arrieta when he’s on the mound.

If you want to join him, here are the chants he suggests for when the opposing team is pitching:

  • Inning 1   constantly chant pitchers last name (example “ARR I ET A!”)
  • Inning 2   constantly MAKE NOISE when pitcher is standing on mound, plus everyone has both arms up and to the left and when pitcher is about to release ball move both arms right
  • Inning 3   totally quiet until pitcher starts wind up then MAKE NOISE!
  • Inning 4   constantly chant pitchers first name (example “JA KEY!”)
  • Inning 5   totally quiet until pitcher winds up then yell “Arrrrrrr!” (like pirate)
  • Inning 6   constantly chant pitchers last name (example “ARR I ET A!”)
  • Inning 7   totally quiet until pitcher starts his wind up then whistle or yell in a high pitched voice!
  • Inning 8   constantly MAKE NOISE when pitcher is standing on mound plus everyone has both arms up and to the left and when pitcher is about to release ball move both arms right
  • Inning 9   constantly MAKE NOISE when pitcher is standing on mound

And any time an opposing pitcher throws a ball, he wants fans to immediately yell, “Ball!”
