Who knew MLB teams were huge “Swifties” at heart!
Major league baseball teams, like the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants, have been using their Twitter accounts to engage in a nation-wide sing-along to Taylor Swift‘s 2009 hit “Love Story.”
It all started when the MLB official Twitter account made a pun, tweeting, “It’s a glove story,” and the rest of the MLB teams soon joined in on the fun.

No word yet on what Taylor thinks of all of the “Love,” but she must think it’s a “home run” since she retweeted a story about it.
Did the MLB nail their Twitter version of “Love Story?” Let us know what you think in the comments!
