Bruce Springsteen's "Land of Hope and Dreams" Provides Musical Backdrop for MLB 2012 Postseason Coverage, Including First-Ever Wild Card Games Exclusively on TBS

Turner Sports announced today that Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band will star alongside some of Major League Baseball's greatest players in video clips highlighting TBS' 2012 MLB Postseason coverage. The videos, which feature the Springsteen song "Land of Hope and Dreams" as the musical backdrop, will also air on MLB Network, FOX and MLB.com leading up to and during this year's Postseason.

The videos feature concert footage of Springsteen and the E Street Band performing the song, along with highlights from this year's MLB season, including two of the year's perfect games thrown by Matt Cain of the San Francisco Giants and Phil Humber of the Chicago White Sox. Other players featured include the Yankees' Derek Jeter and Mark Teixeira, Detroit's Justin Verlander, Texas' Josh Hamilton, Washington's Bryce Harper, the Angels' Albert Pujols and Mike Trout and more.
