Top 45 Sports Trends in May

From Major League Energy Shots to Price Point Soccer Jerseys

— May 27, 2017 — Lifestyle
May is a good month in the sports universe, and the May 2017 sports trends abound as a result. In May, the NHL and NBA playoffs are both in full swing, the MLB reaches its mid-season rhythm, the French Open rocks the tennis world, Champions League soccer has its finals, and so much more. Sports fans know that this leads to all sorts of great products.

For those who need a boost of energy while watching a baseball game (an understandable need considering the pace of the sport,) the Apple Pie Extra Strength 5-hour ENERGY shots are branded by the MLB. Though mysterious energy shots for baseball might make Barry Bonds nervous, the apple pie flavored, baseball-themed energy shots are perfectly American.
