With a median age of 53, MLB has the oldest fanbase in professional sports.
To help them attract a younger audience we put on MLB FoodFest — a one weekend blowout that brought the best dish from every stadium to NYC + paired them with scroll-stopping, oversized Instabait moments.
Every punny piece of copy and shareable detail was designed to freshen up the league's voice and image, showing a new generation of fans that this isn't your dad's MLB.
