H-E-B, 'Houston Astros - Epic Stash'
The Houston Astros revive one of baseball's finest traditions: the epic mustache. In this H-E-B. commercial created by Preacher, the players contemplate whether it's a "stache" or an "stash," adding a twist to the facial-hair style long associated with America's pastime.
Louisville Slugger, 'Silver Standard'
Louisville Slugger takes an innovative approach to its 2023 Silver Slugger Awards honoring the game's best hitters. Crafted by Doe-Anderson, the work recounts the history of the prize in a style designed to excite young fans. Voiced by the legendary Bob Costas.
