    When Bay Area baseball fans trek to see the Oakland A's in mid-June, they'll spot something never seen before in Major League Baseball -- spider webs on first, second and third base.


    The decorating of the bases is part of a marketing deal between Major League Baseball Properties, Columbia Pictures and Marvel Studios to tout the national release June 30 of the "Spider-Man 2" movie.

    The 15 MLB teams hosting inter-league games Jun 11-13 get to have their bases decorated. The San Francisco Giants are out of town during that period.

    Baseball says hooking up with Spider-Man will draw younger fans to its games, in addition to the undisclosed amount of money it's getting from the studio.

    Home plate will not be decorated.

    The deal is baseball's latest attempt to develop a splashier national marketing image. "In an ultracompetitive sports-entertainment environment, you have to take risks," says Tim Brosnan, MLB's executive vice president for business.
