Today the 109th World Series begins at Boston's historic Fenway Park as the Red Sox meet the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 1.

Stepping up to the plate to promote the series is Cash Money cross-genre hit-maker Kevin Rudolf with his new single "Here's to Us." The track will be featured in a new promo that will premiere during the World Series broadcast on FOX and will run on MLB Network though the series and off-season. It features clips of all 30 Major League Baseball teams and such heavy hitters as Miguel Cabrera, David Ortiz, Yadier Molina, Andrew McCutchen, and Hanley Ramirez. (You can see the video here.)

"I'm honored to become a part of America's historical favorite pastime, and to share the feel good vibe of this song with baseball fans across the country," says the "Let It Rock" singer, known for his mix of rock and hip-hop. "I hope this song ignites special, feel-good memories to those that hear it."

"Here's to Us" is the first single off Rudolf's next album, which will be released in 2014. The song was specifically chosen by MLB to celebrate this year's season with its "upbeat rhythm and inspirational lyrics," according to MLB's SVP of marketing and on-air promotions Mary Beck.
