MLB Final Vote For All-Star Game Leads To Peculiar Partnerships Between Teams
Published July 9, 2014
JUST IN TIME? MLB.com's Mark Bowman noted because Braves LF Justin Upton is "often seen blowing bubbles on the field, the Braves are making bubble gum a significant part of their campaign" for the Final Vote. The team has "designed bubble gum-themed T-shirts that their players will wear in the clubhouse this week." The T-shirts, gum and other merchandise also will be "distributed around Atlanta" (MLB.com, 7/7). Meanwhile, model Kate Upton is "asking her 1.45 million Twitter followers to vote" for Justin Upton. The model last October appeared on the cover of SI with Justin and Braves CF B.J. Upton (BIZJOURNALS.com, 7/9).
