Rapper Ludacris is crusading to get hip-hop fans into baseball.
The Disturbing Tha Peace label boss has teamed up with Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim star Torii Hunter to create a new online competition for budding rappers to create a theme song for the slugger.
Hunter says, "Ludacris and I were sitting around and thinking of ways to get urban kids into baseball, and one was through music."
Hunter will promote the initiative by stepping up to the plate at upcoming Angels baseball games as tracks submitted to the WeMix.com competition are played over stadium sound systems.
