“Take me out to the ball game!” Since baseball’s invention in 1839, this great sport has become known as America’s national pastime. Baseball’s history has certainly had some very exciting times, like recently when the Chicago Cubs broke their 108-year losing streak and won not only the 2016 World Series, but the hearts of Americans as well. Baseball falls second in popularity of American sports, coming in only behind football, and it is estimated that baseball ranks seventh most popular in the world. While baseball has been a sport that was primarily played by men only, there have been women signed to professional baseball teams. Softball is similar to baseball and is played primarily by women. There are differences between softball and baseball including the size of the ball which is bigger in softball. In baseball, the pitcher throws the ball overhand while in softball it is thrown underhand. Both baseball and softball have huge amounts of fans. In 2014, it is estimated that Major League Baseball grossed around $9 billion in revenue. Baseball can be a great platform to advertise your business. Rather it is the baseball itself, the bat, or the foam fingers used for cheering, baseball offers promotional opportunities for your company that you cannot find anywhere else.
