Dust Devils to Be Marvel Defenders of the Diamond in 2022?
GESA Stadium is going to be rather exciting in 2022, as the Dust Devils are part of a new partnership with Marvel.
Get ready for Defenders of the Diamond, coming in 2022.
WHAT EXACTLY IS GOING TO HAPPEN ON THE FIELD?
Will they be holding the Infinity Stone? Well, maybe not. But some pretty cool stuff coming.
According to information released by the Dust Devils on Thursday, Oct. 14:
"Minor League Baseball™ (MiLB™) today announced a three-year partnership with Marvel Entertainment, one of the world’s most prominent storytelling brands, for an exciting event series that will play out in ballparks across all levels of MiLB starting in 2022."
Here's what's going to take place:
"In each of the three years of the partnership, all 96 participating MiLB teams will host at least one Marvel Super Heroä themed game as part of the “Marvel’s Defenders of the Diamond” campaign, where teams will wear special edition Marvel Super Hero-branded jerseys on field during the game with other Marvel-themed activities and promotions taking place throughout the game."
More information is expected to be released as we get closer to the 2022 season, but it's certainly going to be a lot of fun. MiLB officials say the last few years they've discovered baseball fans have taken a massive interest in the Marvel franchise, whether it's comic books, or especially the series of blockbuster movies that have come out.
