As the 2018 baseball season gets underway, Apple Industries says its exclusive baseball licensing deal continues to grow, as Face Place photo booths continue to pop up in ballparks and sports bars nationwide. Opening Day was on March 29, and Apple is hoping a spring full of baseball will boost operators’ profits as fans and photo booth customers alike take pics with MLB graphics logos and team regalia. One of the company’s latest installations bowed at Comerica Park, home of the Detroit Tigers, and Nationals Park, where the Washington Nats play (see photo at right). In a few weeks, Apple will also unveil a machine at Busch Stadium, home of the St. Louis Cardinals.
“There’s been tremendous interest in our products from MLB teams and concessionaires,” said Apple COO Scott Avery. “MLB-licensed photos make fantastic personalized souvenirs, at a relatively low cost, for MLB fans. Our MLB license is the reason we can manufacture custom photo booths for individual teams and install them at their very own ballparks,” he continued.
“The fans just line up to get their photos taken, showing them with their favorite baseball team’s graphics from the Cubs to the Mets, the Yankees, the Tigers and more!”
