Major League Baseball shuts down putting player images in beer foam at Yankee Stadium

Adidas announced Tuesday it has signed New York Yankees slugger Aaron Judge, the biggest free agent in the baseball apparel business.

Anyway, the killjoys at the MLB office caught wind of this and reminded the team that the league does not allow active players to be involved in the advertising or promotion of alcohol-related products, putting the kibosh on the foam artistry.

Major League Baseball has issued a warning to the New York Yankees that the team cannot use images of the players faces in beers sold at Yankee Stadium, according to Newsday. Aaron Judge, Gary Sanchez, Giancarlo Stanton and Aroldis Chapman had their likenesses within the beer and that's causing problems with Major League Baseball.

In signing with Adidas baseball, Judge joins a crop of Major League Baseball's rising stars that includes Chicago Cubs' third baseman, Kris Bryant, Houston Astros shortstop Carlos Correa and Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Marcus Stroman, who left Jordan Brand to sign with Adidas this off-season. The club wasn't aware, either.

A Yankees spokesperson also added to the conversation about why the Yankees showed off their new ideas. In addition to players, they were able to imprint the Yankees logo and a logo of Yankee Stadium.

A Yankees spokesman told Newsday the club was merely testing the machine out at a Monday hospitality event, and has no plans to incorporate the decorative elements this season. Last week, VinePair reported on another questionable technoligical beer breakthrough: Ripples, a company whose specialized 3-D printers make beer foam art. "We are now working with Legends, the company that runs the food and concessions stands at Yankee Stadium, who are in the process of testing a number of Beer Ripples machines".
