Under Armour Eyewear is partnering with Ripken Baseball and will provide on-field performance eyewear to the youth players in the league.
“The Ripken Baseball organization is the ideal platform for Under Armour Eyewear to support young ball players and share performance product information. These innovative styles provide them with the safety and eye health protection they need to be better players,” said Timothy Parker, executive vice president of product and marketing for Under Armour Eyewear.
To commemorate the 20th anniversary of Cal Ripken Jr.’s record-breaking achievement of surpassing Lou Gehrig with 2,131 games played, Under Armour Eyewear is releasing two special edition sunglasses. The performance styles UA Igniter 2.0 (adult) and UA Nitro L (youth) will honor the occasion with a custom 2131 logo printed on the inside of the frame. They will be available for purchase throughout the 2015 season at The Ripken Experience Powered by Under Armour in Aberdeen, Mary. The Igniter retails for $104.99 and the Nitro for $64.99.
“In baseball, your eyes play an integral role in how well you perform on the field,” said Colin Clark, vice president of brand marketing at Ripken Baseball. “That’s why we’re excited to partner with Under Armour Eyewear to bring the latest game-day innovations to our players. Under Armour’s Eyewear not only comes in the new styles that young players want, but delivers on our joint vision of helping players perform their best under the safest conditions.”
