Last season the Cubs ad campaign featured a photo of Alfonso Soriano with “Play Like There’s No Tomorrow“, this year the Cubs will feature several of their stars, including Kosuke Fukudome in new print and outdoor advertisements that were unveiled on Tuesday.
The ads will feature Aramis Ramirez, Alfonso Soriano, Kerry Wood, Carlos Zambrano, Derrek Lee and Ryan Theriot, along with Fukudome. Each ad is “designed to showcase the international breadth and depth of the Cubs,” according to a report on Cubs.com. Each advertisement will have a similar theme and will use the Cubs color scheme….red, white and blue and will feature the flag of the players’ home country. The Chicago Sun-Times published both the Kosuke Fukudome and Aramis Ramirez ads and they are linked to below. Fukudome’s reads, “I don’t need an interpreter. My bat does the talking.” While Ramirez features the tagline, “They say hit where they ain’t. Well, they ain’t on Waveland Ave.”
The campaign will include Kerry Wood with a Texas flag while Alfonso Soriano’s will include the flag of the Dominican Republic.
