MLB Baseball Teams as VehiclesLast Updated February 5, 2020
Maybe you've never thought about your favorite baseball team and wondered what vehicle is their counterpart. But we just can't help ourselves. These are the best vehicle counterparts we could find for some of our favorite MLB teams. We based these decisions on last season's results, current events, team names, and gut instincts.

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 they 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 wildcard 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.
