Ball Boyz head to Washington D.C. for MLB’s first ever Assembly event. In conjunction with All-Star Week, Major League Baseball threw a pop up event at District Pier. The organization partnered up with several artists, designers, musicians, and athletes, to create a one of a kind experience inviting fans, and casual observers, to a curated interplay between baseball, culture, and the arts.

MLB Assembly featured live art installations, culinary treats, music performances, and exclusive apparel and accessories collaborations. Mitchell & Ness x Just Don dropped four must-have exclusive Yankees, Cubs, Astros, and Dodgers team shorts, Levi’s set up shop giving fans the ability to customize their own denim jacket with MLB-inspired team patches and fashion brand logos including Billionaire Boyz Club, Public School, and more. Also, the brands previously mentioned dropped their own exclusive merchandise as well.

Of course Ball Boyz hosts Kyle Hodge and Ian Servantes were in candy land exploring and reacting to the several merch drops, including battling for the most lit custom Levi’s jacket. You be the judge. They also sat down with MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred to talk the significance of the Assembly event, the impact professional baseball has on fashion, music, and pop culture, and what we can expect next from their new pop up event.

Check out the full Ball Boyz experience at MLB Assembly in their recap video above.
