Max Scherzer “Livin’ the Dream” video

The MLB Players Association has released a few “Livin’ the Dream” videos, profiling players on and off the field. Two of the three videos feature players who are in the World Series with St. Louis’ Matt Carpenter and Boston’s Jacoby Ellsbury. Max Scherzer is the other.

Most of the video comprises of Scherzer’s commute from his in-season home to Comerica Park. If you look around, you can pick out some familiar surroundings in Birmingham, downtown Detroit, Woodward Avenue and I-75.
