Summertime is all about baseball, and baseball fans who have a love for the rails will enjoy this spotlight on Lionel's newest Major League Baseball boxcars. 

Combining two hobbies is always a lot of fun. Being able to express your baseball fandom while running your trains is about as much fun as it can get! So take a look at Lionel's latest spotlight below, in which every Major League Baseball team has a special new car to show off their colors on the diamond and the rails!

If you're a baseball fan and a railroader, it just doesn't get much better than this. Not only do these cars feature all our favorite teams, the designs are individualized and incredibly well done. The color schemes are perfect, the logos are crisp and clear, and the unique features like the pin-striping on certain teams' cars makes them really stand out. Because each car looks so unique, big-time baseball fans might even want to grab the entire selection!  

You can find the above cars and more baseball-themed trains on the DASH Marketplace. Just search for the name of your favorite team, and you're sure to find what you're looking for. I for one have my eyes on the St. Louis Cardinals cars!
