When it comes to baseball, collecting is not just about owning – it's about living the MLB dream.
That’s why every season Candy gives you the chance to literally gear up and step up to the plate with the top players in the game! Let’s take a look at this year’s highlights.
Batting Practice with Michael Harris II
This summer, 15 Candy collectors were invited to the field with none other than the 2022 National League Rookie of the Year, Michael Harris II of the Atlanta Braves.
The excitement was palpable as the lucky fans, some hailing from as far as Alabama, lived the dream with one of the biggest talents in baseball. Not only did they catch Harris warming up against the Dodgers, they were also treated to an in-person Q&A, photo sesh, and autograph signings after the event.
Field Day with Pete Alonso
Candy collectors also got to enjoy an intimate on-field batting practice and meet & greet session with Mets superstar Pete Alonso this season. During the event, ten lucky collectors stepped onto the grass, captured game-time insights from Alonso, and went home with signed memorabilia.
But that’s not all – during Alonso’s match against the Cubs, two Candy collectors asked Alonso to hit a home run to the Party Deck, where the Candy crew was sitting… and he actually did it! Candy fans asked, and the Polar Bear delivered.
Candy Community Gatherings
On top of our on-field events, we also had plenty of fun in the stands throughout the season. Who can forget the electrifying atmosphere when 80+ Candy collectors assembled at Yankee Stadium for a game against the Tampa Bay Rays? Or when our Candy family got up-close with the #1 Chicago Cubs prospect, Pete Crow-Armstrong, in Seattle during All-Star week? And guess what? Since that event, Pete has been called up from the minors to make his MLB debut with the Cubs!
Swing for the Fences
Each season, every Candy collector has the chance to enjoy unprecedented access to their favorite MLB legends, either by topping the Candy League rankings or by winning an exclusive sweepstake.
If you don’t want to leave things to chance, be sure to round out your roster as you build your ultimate MLB collection. You never know which MLB ICONs will give you an edge in the next Candy Challenge, and this season’s MLB ICONs may very well play a pivotal role in future community campaigns.
At Candy, we don't just collect; we live the game. So keep swinging with us for more unmissable experiences, for a chance to score the next home run!
