Stance and Major League Baseball (MLB) have announced a global partnership that names Stance the Official Sock of the league. As the brand that shook up the segment by injecting it with art and science, Stance will bring its ethos to MLB for the first time at the 2016 All-Star Game where the new Fusion Baseball socks will debut as part of the official uniform.
T-Mobile Home Run Derby participants, National and American League teams will have specific designs, and after the All-Star Game basic stripe and solid colourways will be worn by Major Leaguers for the remainder of the 2016 season. Stance, currently the official sock of the NBA, will also launch a more comprehensive range of styles for the 2017 season.
“There is nothing as prolific as the Major League Baseball uniform and we have been eyeing it for years as a potential canvas for the unique style Stance can bring,” said Clarke Miyasaki, EVP of Business Development at Stance. “It’s extremely rare for any brand to have such an impactful and unique opportunity, so we can’t wait to work with the league to bring an incredible performance sock to the best players in the world.”
