the kind of personality MLB needs


How many times have we compared Major League Baseball to the NBA or the NFL in recent years? How many times has someone said to themselves something like, “my God, MLB lacks personality”? Without being able to provide a precise answer, I can say that it has happened a number of times.

It is not for nothing that audiences have been in constant free fall for several years.

As a good basketball and football fan, I see the difference with the ball. It is obvious, palpable. I often tell myself that baseball, as beautiful as it is on the field, lacks color. Character. Mouth, too. This is generally quite conservative.

Fortunately there are now in the big leagues young people like Jazz Chisholm Jr., Marlins.

Jazz is 23 and is in his first full season in Miami. Colorful, endearing, and fun to listen to, he’s got it all – and going to be an attractive personality within MLB. You only have to watch an interview he gave earlier this month to see it.

“Baseball is like me. You can be yourself on the pitch and do whatever you want there by being yourself. There isn’t any other team in baseball that has so many swag than the Miami Marlins. « 

– Jazz Chisholm Jr.

The tinted blue hair, the team bandana on the forehead and the GTA Vice City video game studs on the feet, that’s not exactly the sort of description a baseball player is given. And yet, it suits him in every way.

It’s new. It is refreshing. And that has the potential to attract a younger clientele, an asset in an era when sports in streaming are gaining in importance.

“I’m like the kid, the son everyone loves,” he supposes when asked about his role with the Marlins.

No, Jazz, you’re not just that. You are an example that baseball can have a little color, too.
