MLB is embracing fun in its postseason ad, and everyone loves it

New, comments

Biggest plot twist of the sports year?

MLB released its first ad for the postseason on Tuesday, and honestly we can’t believe they did this.

Bat flips? Shirt-ripping? BEEF?! What is the world coming to!? You could have pulled me aside yesterday and told me this was going to be MLB’s postseason commercial, and I never would have believed it. I mean, not only did they go all-in on embracing the parts of baseball that some fans detest, but they also picked a fire Migo’s song for the postseason.

I can’t even.

I asked baseball rules expert (and SB Nation.com baseball writer) Grant Brisbee for his take on the commercial:

“Baseball can only be played with a long, heavy stick, but that doesn’t mean it should be kept up MLB’s butt at all times. Embracing excitement and passion seems like a good thing.”

And most fans seemed happy.

Well done.
