Upton to ‘make it hail in the bleachers’

Mar 24, 2012, 1:26 AM | Updated: 2:30 am

Opening Day in Major League Baseball is right around the corner,
and some of the game’s biggest stars are making some bold
predictions about what they’ll do in the first game of the year.

It’s all part of a new commercial that will air on MLB Network, ESPN
and leading up to Opening Day.

“I’ll make it hail in the bleachers,” Upton says during his portion of
the spot, which also features Toronto’s Jose Bautista, Evan Longoria
of Tampa Bay, Pittsburgh’s Andrew McCutchen, Phillies center
fielder Shane Victorino, Matt Kemp of the Dodgers, Paul Konerko
and Alexei Ramirez of the White Sox, Colorado’s Troy Tulowitzki
and Justin Verlander of the Detroit Tigers.
