Minor League Baseball and Marvel Entertainment announced a promotional three-year partnership on Wednesday at the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry, home of the “Marvel: Universe of Super Heroes” exhibit.
Set to launch next season, the program will feature 96 different Minor League clubs across all four levels hosting at least one super hero theme night involving popular Marvel characters — complete with specialized jerseys, of course — along with other Marvel-themed activities and promotions taking place throughout the game.
The event series is officially called “Marvel’s Defenders of the Diamond” and will also come with its own run of comic books, which will be distributed at participating ballparks.
And then there’s this plot twist from the press release: “Co-branded merchandise and other surprises will be unveiled in 2022.” Full story
