Batters Up: Major League Baseball Now on WordPress.com

Attention baseball fans, today we’re launching a triple-header of new themes just for you.

We’ve partnered with MLB.com to bring its Fan, Modern, and Retro blog themes to WordPress.com. The designs range from minimal (“Modern”) to loud (“Fan”), and there’s even a throwback to old MLB Club logos and styles for a bit of nostalgia (“Retro”, of course).

But that’s not all: you can also customize each of the MLB themes with your favorite team’s colors and logo. So whether you prefer O’s to A’s, pinstripes over blues, or Red Sox instead of White, we’ve got a theme for you.

We would also like to welcome the MLB.com blogging community, and thank them for waiting patiently in the bullpen while we prepped their new home here at WordPress.com. MLB bloggers: if you have any questions, please review our FAQ about the transition to WordPress.com, read our support guides, or feel free to get in touch.

So go ahead and join folks like Tommy Lasorda, Ozzie Guillen, Keith Olbermann, and thousands of other blogs of summer, by heading over to Appearance → Themes  → Friends of WordPress.com  in your WordPress.com dashboard to activate an MLB theme, and  Appearance → Theme Options to pick your favorite team.
