Bryce Harper, Yasiel Puig continue ‘Make Baseball Fun Again’ campaign

Saturday May 14th, 2016

The ‘Make Baseball Fun Again’ campaign is in full swing.

On Saturday, Nationals slugger Bryce Harper, who began the movement, slapped a ‘MBFA 2016’ decal on the bottom of his bat during the front end of a double-header against Miami. There’s no word yet on whether he plans to sell these, but he and the team have  begun to sell ‘Make Baseball Fun Again’ merchandise. This is now the third item the campaign has produced, with a shirt and a hat already in circulation.

Harper, who is known for using some pretty flashy custom bat decals, did a great job designing this one.

Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig, who had already announced that he was joining the movement, was seen in a photo posted by ESPN’s Marly Rivera wearing a campaign hat. Best of all? His shirt said #PUIGNOTLATE.

I can get behind a Harper/Puig ticket this November...

Sorry, couldn’t help myself.
