Nickelodeon VP/Sports Marketing Anthony DiCosmo said leagues tend to come in on the perimeter and try to create positive experiences around sports. He cited a promotion Nickelodeon did with select MLB teams to reintroduce the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles brand at ballparks, saying, “You want to have an experience that transcends just being here and introducing your son to baseball. How can you entertain them in a way that keeps their attention in between innings? Having us there adds value to the experience. ... We give access to our brand in a way that’s meaningful and also touches on sports and allows us to be organic to who we are without losing who our brand is.”
