 - Oct 27, 2009   Updated: Mar 24 2011
Oh, the summer is winding down, and that means that baseball season is almost over for another year. Who is going to win the World Series this year? It doesn't really matter as long as you check out the 24 Baseball-Inspired Goodies. From customized baseball bats to $6000 sod, this has got everything a fan would want.

Implications - Sporting events are big business; just look at the UFC and the World Series. In the past, games were about glory and pride in the team you cheered for. Since then, companies, knowing that obssessive fan admiration goes beyond yelling from the stands, have taken advantage by pumping out sports-branded apparel and accessories. Even if it's a losing team, there are various ways to profit whether it's cheaper tickets or selling memorabilia. At the end of the day, it's all about clever marketing and how you can make even the worst team look good.
