Fallout 4 is set in Boston, so some creative soul named Richie Branson created a David Ortiz mod, and gave players the chance to bash baddies in a full Red Sox uniform. (Kindly overlook the fact that Big Papi’s actually a lefty.) It was a neat, free customization, but MLB was not as receptive.
Steve Annear of the Boston Globe received a terse comment about the mod from a league spokesman:
“The use of these marks is an infringement of our rights. We plan to enforce those rights,” an MLB spokesman said in an e-mail Thursday.
Branson told the Globe that if the league presses him, he’ll take down the mod. If there’s one thing that’ll harm MLB’s image, it’s free user-made video game skins. In the meantime, enjoy it while it lasts.
