This comes to us directly from Major League Baseball. During tonight’s All-Star Game, MLB will unveil a spot celebrating the first half accomplishments of 2012 and then pointing us to the postseason that will air exclusively on TBS and Fox.
I’m sure ESPN will be happy to see this spot showing specifically that it’s shut out of the MLB Postseason. But anyway, you’ll see Matt Cain of the San Francisco Giants, Philip Humber of the Chicago White Sox, Josh Hamilton of the Texas Rangers, Johan Santana of the New York Mets, Jared Weaver of the Anaheim Angels among others.
A :60 spot airs on Fox tonight. A :30 version will air on MLB Network after the game.
The spot was produced by the fine people at Turner Sports. Here’s the press release followed by video.
Perfect games. No-hitters. Four-homer games. Rookies making history. It’s been a season filled with a full year’s worth of remarkable moments on the field already, and it’s only the All-Star break.
In a new 60-second spot debuting tonight during the 83rd MLB All-Star Game on FOX at 7:30 p.m. ET, some of the best moments of the season are celebrated with an eye towards the Postseason in October. A 30-second version of the spot will also run on MLB Network tonight.
Among the players and moments highlighted in the spot are the perfect games thrown by Matt Cain and Philip Humber, Josh Hamilton’s four home run game, no-hitters by Johan Santana and Jered Weaver, the great performances by rookies Bryce Harper and Mike Trout, R.A. Dickey’s consecutive one-hitters, and more.
The spots were produced by Turner Sports and after tonight’s debut will run on FOX, ESPN, TBS, MLB Network and MLB.com.
Here’s the aforementioned spot.
There you have it. Enjoy the All-Star Game.
