AARON JUDGE JOINS THE ADIDAS TEAM
adidas just landed on of the "biggest" baseball players in the game with Aaron Judge. The New York Yankee phenom has inked a multiple year deal with adidas to start this baseball season. We will see the MLB American League Rookie of the Year in the new adidas Icon cleats for MLB's Opening Day this week.
Judge on why he joined adidas, “adidas has a ton of momentum and everything the brand is doing right now stands out from the rest and challenges the status quo. I couldn’t be more excited to be joining the adidas family,” said Judge. “I’ve been a fan of adidas for a long time and from the beginning of our conversations, this just felt right to me. I never dreamed of an opportunity like this and I can’t wait to see what we create together.”
Judge looks to continue his early success building off his 52 home runs in his rookie season as well as the reigning winner of the Home Run Derby.
“Aaron is a phenomenal athlete and his style, personality and creator mentality make him the perfect ambassador for adidas Baseball,” said Jeff McGillis, Head of U.S. Team Sports for adidas. “We seek to inspire through our style, our partners and our desire to innovate and create. We’re really looking forward collaborating with Aaron on new product designs, pushing boundaries and working together to shape the future of the sport.”
