Watch Mike Trout and Clayton Kershaw lead off MLB's 2017 ad campaign

Mike Trout and Clayton Kershaw as the faces of baseball?

Trout, the Angels’ center fielder and two-time American League most valuable player, and Kershaw, the Dodgers’ ace and three-time National League Cy Young Award winner, are the first two players you see in the commercial spot that launches the 2017 Major League Baseball advertising campaign.

The spots are designed to showcase “the suspense, twist and turns and must-see moments that can be recapped, teased and talked about like a season of the most entertaining show on television,” according to the league. MLB is expected to formally release this spot on Monday.
