The Cleveland Guardians may not have the biggest budget, and they don’t always have the willingness to spend the way a winning MLB franchise should.

However, in the first two weeks of the 2022 MLB season, we have seen some very good developments and signs from the club.

Their social media accounts are creative and engaging, they’ve spent a lot (to their budget) on an expansion for their best player, they’ve developed a strong rotation and two really good MLB bits in Steven Kwan and Owen Miller, and while they have a 4-5 record, they have been competitive.

As for the first item on the list, the Guardians’ social media team posted a very cool vintage video from their home opener last weekend, which happened to be on Jackie Robinson Day.

“In 2022, we never thought we’d be on the pitch on opening day at home with a VHS camcorder, but it happened. I felt like a father on Christmas morning in 1998. #ForTheLand “, they tweeted.

You can see the video here:

A great creative initiative from the Guardians social media team

The 1998 dad joke was amazing, but the video actually takes us back there.

It was a really creative way to showcase video content in 2022 because it had a really cool retro vibe.

Of course, the images aren’t retro, unless you consider retro weekend.

They show Ramirez signing his contract and saluting his teammates, the new team logo, the stadium and the players lined up wearing Robinson’s number 42.

It was another win for the Guardians’ social media department.

Again, the franchise can be frustrating at times with some of its baseball decisions, but fans seem engaged, and between Kwan and Miller’s escapes and Ramirez’s performance, they’re actually enjoying their time.

Well done, Guardians.
