Since being called up in 2013, Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig has not only demonstrated his tremendous talent, but also his big personality.
MLB.com is spotlighting that personality, in a Twitter/video campaign entitled “#THIS”. The two new commercials feature Puig showing off that personality, fooling around with his teammates during Spring Training.
According to Matthew Mesa of MLB.com, these commercials are featuring the personalities on Major League Baseball, like Puig:
What’s the best way to showcase the personality of the game, its players, clubs and fans? Let the game — and Yasiel Puig — speak for itself.
MLB.com is encouraging people to upload videos to Twitter, coupled with the hastag #THIS, to show why baseball is the most entertaining game in the world.
Puig excited fans right after being called up. His 44 hits in his first month is second all-time behind Joe Dimaggio (48). In 26 games in his first month, Puig hit .436 with a .467 on-base percentage and a .713 slugging percentage.
He was named to the 2014 NL All-star team, and finished the season batting .296 with 16 homers and 69 RBIs.
