The We Are Baseball and the Hall of Fame Tour will be open daily at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick between March 11 and March 26, 2017.
MLB Advanced Media partnered with VR company Jaunt to give fans up close and personal experiences of being present next to the game’s brightest stars, on field, in the dugout and even in the clubhouse. Through content filmed by MLBAM during the dramatic 2016 Postseason, Jaunt will present an emotionally-charged storyline featuring behind-the-scenes access, exclusively shot in VR, to the most meaningful moments from the very first clinch all the way through the final out of the World Series – and even the championship parade through Chicago.
In addition to the VR narrative-based experience of the 2016 Postseason, fans visiting We Are Baseball at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick will be among the first to play MLBAM’s newest mobile video game – Home Run Derby. This VR game, the first developed by any professional sports league and originally released in December, allows fans to compete in the Home Run Derby using VR technology with unparalleled 3D environments featuring eight iconic ballparks.
