In partnership with the Major League Baseball Players Association, UMG has announced an esports series for MLB players. Their first event is the MLBPA Fortnite challenge. Trea Turner, Trevor May, and Lance McCullers Jr. are named as participants in UMG’s tweet, but it promises even more players will be involved.
