Baseball Team Commemorates Vital Win Through The Power of The NES

Posted by Damien McFerran

Celebrating in style

When sports teams score a particularly significant or memorable victory, it's customary for them to celebrate the event with some kind of promotional activity, but The Dunedin Blue Jays have gone one better - they've immortalised one of their proudest moments in 8-bit form.

A single-A affiliate of Toronto, The Blue Jays successfully secured a Florida State League Northern Divisional Play-Off in June thanks to a win over the Clearwater Threshers.

Clearly of the opinion that this was a big deal, the team has compiled a video based on the NES title R.B.I. Baseball. The result, as we're sure you'll agree, is beyond awesome.

I thought it was going to be the Seattle Mariners. Consider me mildly surprised.

Great stuff from Dunedin. What a way to commemorate the experience. R.B.I. is still fairly popular to this day.
