Stephen Colbert takes over @MLB

Stephen Colbert has taken over the @MLB Twitter account.

Follow along right here.

No, the Colbert Report host didn't hack in. He won the keys fair and square by defeating @MLB in the Beat the Streak Challenge back on June 14.

On the second day of the Challenge, Colbert selected Albert Pujols while @MLB rolled with Kevin Youkilis. Pujols got a hit, Youk didn't, and here we are.

Make sure to follow all the Twitter action as the one-time presidential candidate parks himself in @MLB's cockpit from 12 AM to 11:59 PM on Friday, August 5.

Expect some perks, too. Last we heard from Colbert, he promised that "When I take over @MLB, I'll give fans what they want: lots of concession stand sales figures."
