MLB Warns Yankees: Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton Beer Foam Art Violates Rules

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. You can choose from a variety of Yankees players and logos, including Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton.

"We were unaware", a spokesman for Major League Baseball said in a statement Tuesday. "We spoke to the club, the club wasn't aware, either".

As Blue Point Brewery shows, they can put in multiple logos as long as it's preprogrammed.

MLB immediately shut down the New York Yankees' food service folks when the league saw they added images of several players floating on top of the foam of several cups of beer during the introduction of the team's new menu items.

"Blue Point doesn't actually do anything with that, we just brew the beer, we sell it at the Stadium, " a spokesman for Praytell Agency in Brooklyn said.

Yankee Stadium recently unveiled what appeared to be some cool new concession technology: A machine from the company Ripples, Inc., that can print images into a beer's foam. "If MLB and the Yankees have killed it, it's done". So, when the league caught wind of the frothy faces after pictures of the suds circulated on the internet, it issued the Yankees "what amounted to a cease-and-desist-order", Newsday's Steven Marcus reported. "However, the Yankees have no current plans of incorporating this decorative element on concessions items this season". The main innovation was the introduction of a device capable of imprinting images on beer foam, which would be used on drinks within the stadium. "Ripples, however, was not involved with this particular activation".
