Take me out to the ballgame

Baseball and comics, together again. Or maybe for the first time. Triple-A Baseball and Marvel Entertainment have teamed up to create an exclusive baseball-themed comic featuring Spider-Man, Iron Man, the Fantastic Four and the Hulk. The book will be handed out by all 30 Triple-A teams in August — including to the first 5,000 fans at the Sky Sox game Sunday afternoon against Tacoma.

From the press release:

The “Triple-A Baseball Heroes” comic book sees Marvel’s legendary Super Hero family the Fantastic Four and their children, Franklin and Valeria, enjoy a day off at the ballpark for an exciting game between the International and Pacific Coast leagues. Peter Parker (Spider-Man) is also making a day of it with Aunt May and hoping to get in a few photos for the Daily Bugle as well. Additionally, billionaire industrialist Tony Stark, aka Iron Man, is on hand to throw out the first pitch. Seeing the excitement of the fans and the potential financial windfall, Stark also considers making an investment in the League; however, fans, players and heroes all get more excitement than they bargained for when the villainous Sandman appears and the Incredible Hulk is there to tag him out!
