MLB teams put aside differences, team up for Twitter rendition of 'Total Eclipse of the Heart'

Cincinnati Reds, Colorado Rockies, Cleveland Indians, Philadelphia Phillies, Washington Nationals, Minnesota Twins, Toronto Blue Jays, Detroit Tigers, Tampa Bay Rays, Milwaukee Brewers, Baltimore Orioles, Chicago White Sox, New York Mets

Monday's solar eclipse was an opportunity for people all around the United States to put their differences aside and celebrate a truly rare celestial event. In MLB, this meant teams put division rivalries and playoff races on hold to mark the occasion with one of the best eclipse-related songs of all time, Bonnie Tyler's 1983 classic, "Total Eclipse of the Heart."

What started with the Cincinnati Reds tweeting out a lyric from the song with a GIF of Joey Votto, quickly got out of hand.

All in all, 13 teams -- spanning divisions and leagues and crossing playoff races -- teamed up for the rendition, all adding their own GIFs as they went lyric by lyric.
