Just when you thought there were no campaign videos for the 2018 Major League Baseball All-Star Game, guess again. A pair of San Francisco Giants teammates decided to go viral in rather hilarious fashion.
As the Camping World MLB Final Vote heats up to send one more player from the American League and National League to the 2018 ASG, San Francisco Giants teammates Derek Holland and Hunter Pence dug deep into the creative archives to become “The Ballot Brothers” to support teammate Brandon Belt.
A MLB and WWE mix? What could possibly go wrong?
It was 71 seconds of belly-laughing fun. A shirtless Holland gives an all-time performance, while Pence quietly provides a strong role as well.
Labeling Belt “the best looking guy there is out there” and “the cream of the crop” might not be the reasons to send him to Washington D.C. for the All-Star Game on July 17 at Nationals Park, but the Giants first baseman has made a case to make the Midsummer Classic this season.
A two-time World Series champion in 2012 and 2014, and 2016 MLB All-Star, Belt is batting .303 with 13 home runs, 42 RBIs and a .905 OPS, which puts him on pace to set career highs across the board.
Additionally, after being placed on the 10-day disabled list and having his appendix removed in June, the 30-year-old Belt has hit a scorching .394 in July.
Not to mention, the Nacogdoches, Texas native approves of the Ballot Brothers movement.
San Fransisco isn’t stopping there, either. The organization is all in on #BeltTheBallot.
Even the Seattle Mariners from the AL are all about it.
This is not going to be easy. There is some stiff competition for the final NL spot. Jesus Aguilar (Milwaukee Brewers), Matt Carpenter (St. Louis Cardinals), Max Muncy (Los Angeles Dodgers), and Trae Turner (Washington Nationals) each have a case and could easily win the final vote decided by the fans.
However, nothing will likely come close to Holland and Pence as the Ballot Brothers this season, and if this doesn’t push Belt to the top, everyone at least got a great laugh.
