The team the Baseball Player plays for is called the "Clutchers." This could be a reference to the hand design of minifigures, or possibly to the 2010 movie The Adventures of Clutch Powers or possibly no reference at all.
He comes with a very unique, exclusive baseball hat with a curved bill. The only other minifigures with this part are the Lumberjack, the Baseball Fielder, and the Rapper, but they have different printings.
Parts of this minifigure appeared in the Build-a-Minifigure bins at the LEGO Store.
He is a playable minifigure in Ninjago: Rise of Snakes (the App.)
To the Baseball Player, nothing is as important as good teamwork. He memorizes all of his team’s game strategies, pays close attention to the coach’s signals, and does his best to help win no matter what position he’s playing. It’s not about personal fame or the number of home runs he hits – it’s about everybody having a good time on the field, and giving the crowd in the stands a terrific game to watch.
The Baseball Player isn’t just a professional athlete; he’s a big fan of the sport, too. He has an ever-growing collection of baseball memorabilia, from Bob Battingsley’s original rookie card to the signed bat of the world-famous “Brick” Ruth himself. But his top favorite is his mint-in-package collection of historic baseball stadium hot dogs. He’s almost got the complete set!
