Chicks Dig The Long Ball

I saw this Nike commercial on SportsCenter and forgot how good it was. I love me some baseball commercials and it has been a while since we’ve had a MopUpDuty YouTube article so here are a few of my favourites:


Tom Glavine and Greg Maddux go on a mission to bulk up and get chicks like Mark McGwire.

Cal Ripken did a Coke commercial at the time of his retirement and this is it.

Such a good game with that hypnotic music – a commercial for RBI baseball.

I don’t know about you, but growing up in the 80’s my life revolved around Panini baseball sticker albums.

Pete Rose sings about Aqua Velva. Not as good as Tom Henke’s, but still a classic.

  • Gotta love the YouTube baseball bits. We’ll have to bring this feature back. Is the Henke comerical available?

  • Henke is not available unfortunately. I was really hoping to find the Roberto Alomar “catch the taste” frozen fruit punch commercial, but to no avail. The Jays also had a nice little ad campaign where Chris Woodward gets hit in the head with a ball and slips into some delirium. In the dream sequence he is canoeing with a nicely done up Roy Halladay in a dress, it was quite an effective commercial as it has been burned into my memory forever.

  • Gotta see the last one. Wonder how many tickets that commerical sold? Guess it opened the team up to a new audience, if you know what I mean…
