You’ve definitely seen her if you’ve been watching the division series. Her smile is a little too placid, her eyes lock on you through the screen. She leers slightly from her place above the Utz logo printed behind home plate.
She is Little Utz Girl, and she has become ubiquitous with this postseason, which — shocker — is being sponsored by Utz snacks. Utz, makers of such fine party fare as cheese balls, pretzels, and other junk food faves, have their logo on everything from the graphic cards between innings, to the backstop, to the pitcher’s mound. You truly can’t go an inning without seeing it, or being reminded of it.
