Adidas Signs Seattle Mariners Outfielder Julio Rodríguez
Adidas has signed Seattle Mariners outfielder Julio Rodríguez to a multi-year endorsement deal, the brand confirmed today.
Despite making his MLB debut less than a year ago, Rodríguez is already regarded as one of baseball’s brightest young stars. Last year, he became the fastest player to hit 25 home runs and steal 25 bases. Some of Rodríguez’s other notable achievements in his debut major league season include earning the AL Rookie of the Year honors, the AL Silver Slugger award, and being named an All-Star.
“Joining the three stripes family is a dream,” Rodríguez said. “Adidas has always represented the best of creativity, performance and culture, all of which are extremely important to me. Together I know we will elevate the game of baseball on and off the field. I’m thrilled to join this legendary brand.”
Rodríguez joins a strong list of Adidas-affiliated baseball and softball rosters, including Aliyah Andrews, Nicole Bates, Kris Bryant, Luis Robert Jr., Corey Seager and Trea Turner.
