At the ripe young age of 23, Angels outfielder Mike Trout made history by winning his second consecutive All-Star Game MVP award earlier this week in Cincinnati. It was yet another sign that new commissioner Rob Manfred is embracing the youth movement going on in his sport.
It's something the teams are taking note of, too, Sports Business Insider Rick Horrow points out in the video above.
"They sign a deal with wireless headphones, Beats by Dre, and it's important to understand that the teams are doing it as well," he said of MLB licensed headphones. "The Yankees, the White Sox, the Giants, the Dodgers, and yes, the Chicago Cubs. You can get your limited editions if you act now, it'll only cost you $399.95 for those headphones. I can't wait."
Manfred agreed with Horrow, that the game is getting younger in multiple facets. You can see everything Horrow had to say in the Sports Business Minute above. And make sure to follow Horrow on Twitter for the latest #SportsBiz updates.
