I don’t know about anyone else, but few things are likely to make me smile, trip my pulse, or bring a tear to my eye quite like a well orchestrated hype video.
We typically see these appear in the early weeks of spring, thawing off our winter-chilled hearts and warming us to the core ahead of Opening Day. This season, of course, we’re all melting into a puddle in the summer humidity, but the enthusiasm for baseball has never been greater.
So on this, the second part of Opening Day, why don’t you take a few minutes to enjoy some unadulterated hype joy from all the MLB teams, and get yourself in the right mood to spend a whole day watching baseball.
Of course there’s no better way to get started than with the brilliant Rays hype video.
And one from Fox Sports Sun.
The official MLB account had their own to stir things up for day one.
Let’s get into the other teams specific videos.

The Jays might not have a home park, but they have home team hype.
Some players aren’t waiting for team versions, they’ve got their own.
Is everyone properly hyped now?
