Ultimate Baseball Theme

Ultimate Baseball comes pre-skinned for the Boston Red Sox (our bias is showing), but built-in control panel options let you change imagery and scorecard info and blog for any team!

Plus, no need to fuss with custom fields — Ultimate Baseball comes with a custom upload/resize tool.
