This season, Minor League Baseball and Esurance created the Esurance Call-Up Worthy platform, which launched exclusively on and MiLB team websites in June. The new, modern platform celebrated the iconic moment in Minor League Baseball when a player is called up to Major League Baseball, highlighting his journey through shareable digital and social content such as virtual trading cards, video highlights and the Esurance Farm Report.

"It's been a fantastic first year for Esurance Call-Up Worthy players and their fans as they've followed the players' journey online and on the field," said Cyndie Beckwith, Vice President, Marketing for Esurance. "We've celebrated 152 players being called up this season, re-living their most memorable moments together, and we continue to recognize more prospects as they make their first Major League appearance this September."

"The September call-up has long been a pivotal moment in a player's career, marking a coming of age of sorts," said David Wright, Chief Marketing & Commercial Officer for Minor League Baseball. "Through the Esurance Call-Up Worthy platform, we celebrate these prospects in their quest to make a big-time impact with their Major League teams."

In June, Esurance and Minor League Baseball announced a strategic multi-year partnership making it the exclusive home and auto insurance partner of Minor League Baseball. To learn more about Esurance's Call-Up Worthy campaign with Minor League Baseball, visit
