In an interesting marketing move, Major League Baseball team the Philadelphia Phillies have announced that rising stars W&W will perform following their home game on July 5th.  Everyone admitted to the game will be allowed to stay for a 90 minute DJ set from the duo, which is sure to attract a different crowd than the average baseball game.  The team’s Director of Marketing and Special Projects, Michael Harris talked about the commonalities between EDM listeners and MLB fans, saying: ““We know it’s a little unusual, but two of the most passionate fan bases out there are dance music and sports. So [we thought], let’s try to blend them together for a unique event. The macro point of this is to create something for our fans to do after the game is over.
