If baseball wants to know how its marketing started failing in the eyes of teenagers and urban youth, I'm sure they can trace it back to this 1993 failure of a promo that features Mike Mussina, Rick Sutcliffe* and some random rappers.
I suppose it's nice they gave a nod to Kris Kross with those backward A's, Mets and Yankees jerseys, though.
A big BLS head nod goes to Tirico Suave for the find.
*There seems to be a Brady Anderson/Jamie Moyer debate over the identity of the third Oriole. With the way he's standing, it's hard to tell. Anyone?
