What do the Kalamazoo Growlers, Jose Canseco, and a bunch of Youtube All-Star Influencers all have in common?

Well... apparently, they all love baseball, and you can see ALL of them on the field at the same time. This August, Canseco, as well as other MLB and College baseball All-Stars, join forces with Youtube Influencers to create the Northern Nut Smugglers, and will play a game of "Jacked" Baseball against a Kalamazoo Growlers All-Star Team.

By now, I'm sure you've seen footage of the Savannah Bananas playing their style of ball dubbed "Banana Ball." It plays out more like the Harlem Globetrotters, but on a baseball field, and they have now been touring the country on this particular brand of baseball.

Well, the problem is, while the team is great, and it is entertaining... it still lacks a certain element of "Celebrity."

Enter "JACKED" Baseball, featuring the Growlers All-Star Team, and the Northern Nut Smugglers, which will consist of Youtube Influencers like Frankie LaPenna (the dude with the big butt), Garson and Tucker Genal, and dozens more than combined have more than 50 million followers.

But the Growlers All-Star Team are no slouches. That team will consist of former Growlers, Detroit Tiger and homerun leader Darrell Evans, Coach Drake, Growlers Hall of Famer Adam Wheaton, and... 6x MLB All-Star, 2x World Series Champion Jose Canseco!

So what is this game, and why is it called "JACKED" Baseball? Well, because it's like baseball... but jacked up to a whole new degree. And the rules are a bit different, which you can see in the video below.

Mario Party Baseball rules, Homerun Derby, Penalty Boxes, juiced bats and balls... Jose Canseco... THIS SOUNDS AWESOME!!!!

You can get on the priority ticket list by going to the Growlers' website now, which could include autograph sessions with some of the players, and giveaways.

This is yet another innovative touch that the Growlers team are bringing to Kalamazoo that is gonna make major headlines. All Eyes on Homer Stryker Field this August.
