Well here’s an awesome thing that has been a long time coming. Lego compatible minifigures of all your favorite Major League Baseball superstars (and non-stars)!
Available at team shops and select retailers nationwide, or directly from OYO Sports, each figure comes complete with hat, ball, bat and glove in a truly nifty collector case. Players from all 30 MLB teams are available, so whoever your favorite players is, chances are you can find him in their store (Francisco Cervelli, anyone?)
It all started at the ballpark. Shortly after building an elaborate starship from a popular building-block brand, a father took his son to Fenway Park to take in a Red Sox game. Taking in the sights and sounds of the park, a true New England rite of passage, the duo would begin to explore the confines of the park in search of more mini-figures for the seven-year-old’s starship and beyond. As their searches went without results, an idea was born: Creating mini-figures of athletes that kids could play baseball with.
OYO has even upped the minifig game by adding articulation (in the legs and arms) to allow for true baseball action poses.
