MLB Baseball Teams as VehiclesLast Updated August 4, 2019
We can all agree that cars and sports go together like milk and cookies. So we decided to take every MLB team and match it with a vehicle for the upcoming season. Some of these are based on last season, others based on current events, and a few are based on the team names.

Here are a few that might need further explanation.
- Pittsburgh Pirates - Kia Soul - An amazing resurgence. After decades of losing seasons, the Pirates went on a multi-year streak of winning seasons. While the 2016 season might be one to forget, the 2017 season could be the year the team gels. The first couple months will be crucial.
- Boston Red Sox - Lamborghini Veneno - Enjoyment at a price. Fenway Park ranks as one of the most expensive places to enjoy a baseball game with two tickets, two hot dogs, two beers and parking costing upwards of $150.
- Baltimore Orioles - Chevy Volt - Is this their time to shine? The Orioles have key players scheduled to hit free agency in 2018. Can they keep performing like the have the past couple seasons?
- Tampa Bay Rays - Chevrolet Captiva Sport - Not many people were interested. Like the Chevrolet Captiva Sport, the Tampa Bay Rays don’t seem to have many fans interested in coming out to the stadium to watch the team play or buy the car.
- Toronto Blue Jays - Zamboni - The best sports in Toronto might be ice based now. The past couple seasons have been amazing but the AL East is getting better and a wildcard spot is going to be even more difficult to get. Meanwhile, the Maple Leafs are poised to reach the playoffs.
- Kansas City Royals - Toyota Prius - Not winning without a big head start. If the Royals can’t get out to a big lead this season, another .500 season looks likely.
- Oakland Athletics - Delorean DMC-12 - Wishing they could turn the clock back to that 2014 wild-card game. The A’s were ahead in the 8th, 9th and 12th inning of that game only to ultimately lose.
- Washington Nationals - Bluesmobile - Gets you to the playoffs, then falls apart. The Nationals have made the playoffs in three of the past five seasons but haven’t been able to make it past the NLDS.
- Atlanta Braves - FedEx Truck - Shipping their gear to the suburbs. The Atlanta Braves new stadium, SunTrust Park, is located 10 miles outside of Atlanta.
- St. Louis Cardinals - Ford F-150 - Built tough and reliable with devoted fans. The Cardinals have made the postseason six out of the eight previous seasons. According to a Nielsen Scarborough, the Cardinals have more local fans than any other team in MLB.
- Colorado Rockies - Nissan 370Z Touring - Powerful acceleration but a stiff and choppy ride. The Rockies lineup starts out pretty strong but there might not be enough in the rest of the roster to keep them in contention.
Here we go again, matching up two of our favorite things: cars and sports. This time we’re giving every Major League Baseball Team it’s own vehicle based a few factors such as their past season performance or their team name to name a few.
