Cult of Joe Maddon

There I was, in the middle of the hotel bar at the Baseball Winter Meetings, proposing the seemingly imaginable: a woman throwing batting practice to a major league team.

It was amazing to reach our third post-season and our 4th winning season. September 28, 2011-- the nite our Rays won the 2011 AL Wild Card will always be known as:
Six minutes that shook baseball history.
And the day before that we had a triple play.

The Rays get out of a bases-loaded jam in the sixth with a triple play.

Major League Baseball announced "" is the theme of its 2011 Postseason multimedia campaign -- a celebration of the legendary moments like those that always seem to arise when you least expect them. You can expect to relive many October legends like those as you follow the high-tension drama that is on its way.

"One of the many great aspects of Postseason baseball is to see who will rise to the occasion and give a performance that will be remembered forever," said Tim Brosnan, MLB executive vice president of business. "Sometimes it is the star players like Albert Pujols, Derek Jeter or Roy Halladay last year and sometimes it is a role player like Aaron Boone, Dave Roberts or Cody Ross. This campaign is designed to capture how a player can forever cement his reputation in baseball history during October."

The holistic campaign launches this weekend across all platforms, fully integrated with MLB.com, MLB Network, TBS, FOX, and locally through the clubs.

The first spot airs Saturday on FOX and then Sunday on ESPN and TBS. The series will continue with multiple TV and digital executions on FOX, TBS, ESPN, MLB Network, local MLB broadcasts, and in MLB ballparks through October. Each one will feature the hit song "Written in the Stars" by Tinie Tempah featuring Eric Turner as the backdrop to memorable video moments that showcase signature postseason highlights and memorable moments from this season.
