Bryce Harper Re-signs with Under Armour
Bryce Harper is a professional baseball player for the Washington Nationals of Major League Baseball (MLB). He was picked up by the Nationals in 2010 with the first overall draft and currently plays right field for them. Harper has already won multiple awards from the National league (NL). From Rookie of the Year, to NL MVP, the young 23 year old has already been wildly successful. Harper was also chosen to play in the 2012 all-star game, making him one of the youngest players to be selected. There is no wondering why a huge company like Under Armour would love to sponsor an athlete like Bryce. Under Armour picked him up back in 2011 and has reaped the benefits ever since.
This past Tuesday, Harper announced via his Instagram account that he is re-signing with Under Armour. ESPN reported that the deal is a 10 year extension and that it is one of the biggest endorsement deals in MLB history. Although the dollar figure was not released, you can bet both Under Armour and Harper will be making it big from the new deal. Under Armour even said, “it is counting on the deals they’ve made with elite athletes like Harper and Steph Curry to bring in $5 billion in sales for the year”. Harper is expected to release new, signature spikes, the Under Armour Harper One, coming up in July. This is definitely going to be a huge marketing weapon for Under Armour this summer.
