Plymouth Meeting, PA (PRWEB) July 08, 2015
For a professional baseball player, there are a few ways you know you’ve achieved immortality: You win a World Series. You’re inducted into the MLB Hall of Fame. You get Creature-ized. Barry Larkin, the World Series-winning Cincinnati Reds shortstop and Hall of Famer, has now scored an immortality triple.
A limited-edition custom 7-inch-tall plush figure of Barry Larkin will be created by Bleacher Creatures and distributed to the first 2,400 young fans (ages 12 and under) at Kids Day on Friday, July 10, during T-Mobile All-Star FanFest, held in Cincinnati’s Duke Energy Convention Center, which runs through Tuesday, July 14.
Larkin, an All-Star Spokesperson for MLB All-Star Summer, played his entire career with the Reds, winning the World Series in 1990, before his retirement in 2004. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2012.
Bleacher Creatures, the innovative licensing and manufacturing company, is known for its incredibly true-to-life plush figures of the greatest sports and entertainment icons of all time. Their 2015 MLB line-up features players from every team in the league.
