Nats’ Bryce Harper signs with Under Armour

Under Armour Inc. has signed a multi-year partnership with outfielder Bryce Harper, the first pick of last year’s Major League Baseball draft by the Washington Nationals.

Harper, who is playing with the Hagerstown Suns, the Nationals’ Class A affiliate, will wear Under Armour cleats and apparel during games and will be featured in in-store and advertising promotional campaigns.

“Bryce is an electrifying athlete, and we look forward to partnering with him as he begins his professional career and as he helps carry the torch for the next generation of Under Armour athletes,” Matt Mirchin, senior vice president of sports marketing for the Baltimore-based company, said in a statement Tuesday.

After joining the Nationals’ organization in August, Harper, who turned 18 in October, led the Scottsdale Scorpions to the Arizona Fall League Championship after becoming the second-youngest player in AFL history.
