Find out how Global Poker is bringing fun poker events to baseball fans at MLB stadiums across the U.S.

America’s favorite hobby + America’s favorite pastime sounds like a win-win to Global Poker.

Global Poker is constantly throwing its players curve balls in the form of fun and juicy promotions, but now, they’re taking it to an all-new level. The online poker site has teamed up with Major League Baseball (MLB), effectively combining one of America’s favorite hobbies with America’s favorite pastime.

MLB + Poker

The first official Global Poker and MLB event recently took place at Minute Maid Park, home of the Houston Astros. Poker tables were set up inside the stadium for game attendees to play some hands and try to win prizes and swag, and from the looks of it, fun was had by all.

“Baseball is America’s favorite pastime. Poker is America’s favorite game, and putting the two together just makes perfect sense.”

For Global Poker, partnering with MLB and the great sport of baseball is a perfect fit.

“Baseball is America’s favorite pastime. Poker is America’s favorite game, and putting the two together just makes perfect sense,” said Joseph Del Duca, Head of Communications and Social Media at Global Poker.

An event attendee in Houston agreed.

“People that are into baseball are into competitive sport. People in poker are in a competitive sport, so those might just go together.”

It’s official: baseball and poker both provide a competitive thrill, and putting the two together can make for even more excitement. Just ask Brian Tamplen, who got to step onto the mound in Houston and throw out the ceremonial first pitch, all for winning a tournament on Global Poker.
