Stanton makes TV commercial
JUPITER, Fla. — Home runs come to mind when talking about Mike Stanton.
In 2010, the Marlins slugger paced all rookies with his 22 homers. He added 21 more in Double-A before getting called up to the big leagues in June.
With his immense power, Stanton may ultimately become the Marlins’ first home run champion.
As he prepares for his sophomore season, Stanton is gaining some national attention, but he is doing so talking about defense.
Stanton is featured in an MLB 2K11 commercial, talking about playing “perfect defense.”
“It’s a new experience,” Stanton said of being featured in video game commercial.
The commercial was filmed in Lakeland in mid-January.
