Ryan McMahon of the Colorado Rockies has been hitting the baseball all over the place since the All-Star break. We found out on Monday that he hasn’t just been doing it in real life but he’s been doing it in commercials as well.
In a new ad for Foot Locker, Ryan McMahon and comedian/actor/producer Chico Bean have a discussion about baseball, art and Nike shoes. You can check out the sweet swing of the Colorado Rockies infielder in the commercial below…
I caught up with McMahon before Monday’s series opener against the Los Angeles Dodgers at Coors Field to ask him about the commercial and any behind-the-scenes information he’d like to spill.

“It happened when we were in L.A. before the first game of the series,” McMahon explained. “We had a night game so I went in the morning. My agent had set it up. It was so much fun. I just hit painted baseballs for like an hour. Then we did a couple of lines inside. It was cool. We just hung out. I had a great time.”
McMahon said he found out about the commercial just a few hours before it was scheduled to take place so there was little time to prepare or get nervous.
“I found out the day I was flying in,” McMahon smiled.
And after he saw the finished product, what did he think?
“I thought, ‘Damn, they really did put a lot of makeup on my face,'” McMahon laughed. “It was cool. I had such a great time.”
Rockies fans know the sweet swing that McMahon has produced this season, hitting .317 in 25 games since June 27 heading into Monday’s contest. Now the rest of the world can see it as well every time they check out the Foot Locker commercial.
