Lights, camera, action.
Who would have guessed that the DC comic book superhero Batman would get Major League Baseball attention on a live broadcasted game.
Well turns out the Houston Astros pitcher made his first major league start and wanted to roll out his sleek Batman cleats for the world to see. Not only did he have a career start pitching for the hyped Astros, he gave himself social media attention with #batmancleats hashtags.
With the much hyped Batman cleats McCuller didn’t pull out with a win against the Oakland Athletics Monday night with a 2-1 loss- but he gained new fans and created media attention through fun conversations.
Pretty smart guy if you ask me…. til the next time.
