Dice baseball refers to a variety of items, including dice games, fuzzy dice of your favorite team and Major League Baseball branded games. In other words, the bases are loaded (sorry, I couldn't resist) and you've got a lot of choices available.

In a few cases, fuzzy baseball dice represent popular players like David Ortiz or Daisuke Matsuzaka, who is better known by his nickname Dice K. If you're a fan of a player who isn't a super star yet, don't worry! Create custom fuzzy dice to show your appreciation of their superb defensive skills or speedy base running.
"For it is root, root, root for the home team, if they don't win its a shame..."
Major League Baseball's marketing machine has entered the world of classic games like Monopoly and Yahtzee. Chicago Cubs fans can buy the Cubs Yahtzee game with the Cubs logo on the dice. Yankees fans can buy Yankees Yahtzee with the Yankee logo on the dice. Red Sox fans can buy the Red Sox Yahtzee.
