“MILB’s new partnership with Marvel Entertainment brings together two-story brands that create memories that are passed down from generation to generation,” said Kurt Hunzecker, Major League Baseball’s Vice President of Minor League Business Operations. “The possibilities are endless with this partnership and we look forward to some incredibly creative content, merchandise and promotions.”

Minor League Baseball partners with Marvel Entertainment for superhero-themed MiLB games

Minor League is the latest sports league to promote sports games with the superhero craze. In May 2021, ESPN and Marvel — both of which are owned by Walt Disney — debuted the first Marvel-inspired “NBA Special Edition”.

The NFL has had a similar collaboration with Nickelodeon, resulting in an RPG-themed NFL game.

MiLB is thrilled to launch its own Marvel partnership, which will include all 96 MiLB teams between the 2022 and 2024 seasons. Each team will have the opportunity to wear a Marvel-themed jersey during the partnership.

Fans will also get a chance to join in the superhero fun: Marvel will create a comic book that will be distributed throughout the partnership at participating ballparks. Co-branded merchandise and other surprises will be announced in 2022.
