MLB All-Star Game Shines on Social

Kicking off on Sunday, July 7th with the SiriusXM Futures Game and capping off with the 2019 MLB All-Star Game on Tuesday, July 9, the annual mid-summer classic has come and gone for the MLB. Seeing tons of excitement on the field throughout the week, we saw a highly talented field for the Futures Game, Pete Alonso win the T-Mobile Home Run Derby and the American League outlasting the National League 4-3 in the All-Star Game.

All Star Game Social Summary

Social Summary

Over the entire All-Star Week, we saw some pretty eye-popping numbers. Over the span of 7/7-7/10, we saw a total of 272.2K people engaged on social, with 3.3 million total engagements amongst them. This equated to a total engagement value of over $3.1 million on social for the 4 days.

Home Run Derby

With records being broken all night from single round records to total derby records, the 2019 Home Run Derby was surely the talk on Twitter Monday evening. We saw a total engagement number of over 160,000 people discussing the All-Star events. Among the big winners on social during the event was none other than the title sponsor of the event, T-Mobile. Over the first three days of All-Star week, including the night of the derby, T-Mobile had generated over $2.1M in value on social. 

Although not the winner, it goes without saying that the star of the show was Toronto Blue Jays rookie sensation, Vladimir Guerrero Jr. During the timeframe of the event, our platform showed twice as much conversation around Guerrero Jr. than derby champion Pete Alonso… and Guerrero Jr. doesn’t even have a Twitter account. Most of this conversation was consumed by Guerrero Jr.’s semifinal match up vs Los Angeles Dodgers’ Joc Pederson. The two sluggers set a record for a combined 79 homers in their match-up, and the clip you see below from SportsCenter’s Twitter account generated $217K in total engagement and impression value. It goes without saying, this year’s derby was a HIT!
