National League MVP Buster Posey Scores with New Buster Bash Pro App
New York, New York – The follow-up to reigning National League Most Valuable Player Buster Posey’s popular and ground-breaking Buster Bash app, Buster Bash Pro is now available as free download from the iTunes App Store for iOS devices or the Google Play Store for Android devices. The game is also available to play at the DirecTV Facebook page.
Developed by Big Blue Bubble, Buster Bash Pro allows players to take Buster or his sister, softball star Samantha Posey, across America to five major cities. Each city has five challengers to conquer and there are also mini-games for improving hitting skills. The game includes levels and power-ups featuring DirecTV and BODYARMOR SuperDrink(TM), two of Buster’s corporate partners.
Said Posey: “I was excited to see that people of all ages enjoyed playing Buster Bash, so I’m happy that we’re able to bring everyone a new version to play. Buster Bash PRO has new challenges and levels to engage fans, and will be available on both Apple and Android devices.”
The original Buster Bash, released last year, was the first mobile game launched by a Major League player. Buster Bash earned a four-star rating in the iTunes App Store, was downloaded more than 380,000 times and made the top 10 free apps list. Buster Bash was recognized by the Webby Awards as an Official Honoree in the Games category.
CAA Sports brokered the deal for Buster Bash on behalf of its client Posey.
