Tampa Bay Rays: Baseball-Themed Animation Content

When the Tampa Bay Rays, one of the most fan-friendly and innovative franchises in Major League Baseball, wanted to reach young fans in an entertaining and educational way, they turned to Starbridge Media Group’s expertise in creating unique, family-targeted in-stadium entertainment. Coming off an incredible 2008 season, culminating with its first-ever World Series appearance, the Rays inked a licensing agreement for the 2009 season for Starbridge’s “Battery Mates: Bangs and the Tank,” an animated series of educational and comedic baseball-related vignettes designed to heighten the team’s fan experience. Starbridge’s “Bangs and the Tank” series consists of various animated short videos that teach the rules and strategies of baseball in a fun, engaging, and light-hearted manner. The Rays plan to air “Bangs and the Tank” on the video board at Tropicana Field over the course of the 2009 season during Sunday games and “Park and Recreation Days.” The Tampa Bay Rays and Starbridge Media Group: Two hot sports organizations at the top of their games.
