Major League Baseball has reached a licensing agreement with Rocket League and will have downloadable content for the vehicular soccer video game starting Monday.

Downloads in the MLB Fan Pack will include cosmetic items such as cap toppers, flags and player banners for all 30 teams, as well as a baseball-themed rocket boost.

Led by Jamie Leece, MLB vice president for Games and VR, baseball's deal with game developer and publisher Psyonix is a further push to expand its brand into new areas. Rocket League touts a community of more than 56 million players for its action-sports game.
