Budweiser is celebrating the way baseball unites players and fans, despite the vast diversity of the sport, ahead of the MLB’s All-Star game presented by Mastercard.

The film, titled ‘The Language of Baseball,’ is narrated by former MLB pitcher and commentator Pedro Martinez, and showcases how in baseball anyone who has the skill and determination – whether from the streets of the Dominican Republic or the suburbs of Japan – can succeed at the highest level. 

The film concludes with Budweiser-sponsored players Ji-Man Choi (Tampa Bay Rays), Walker Buehler (LA Dodgers), Manny Machado (San Diego Padres) and Didi Gregorius (Philadelphia Phillies) all saying “I speak baseball” in their own language.

Created by VaynerMedia, the film also tells how baseball, which was once solely a pastime for Americans, has now reached 21 countries, and 9 languages are represented in the sport today.
