BALTIMORE (WJZ) — MLB has reportedly reached an agreement with Under Armour to be the exclusive uniform provider beginning in 2020, according to Terry Lefton of Sports Business Daily.

The new deal will start with the 2020 season, according to a Sports Business Journal report. The agreement would be Under Armour’s first uniform deal with a major U.S. sports league.

Under Armour-branded MLB jerseys will be made for in-game use, while Fanatics will have the rights to other apparel. Hats, however, will continue to be made by New Era.

An official announcement is expected to come following the World Series. More details to come.

    And which foreign country will Under Armour export those jobs to?????????? All of their products are made in sweat shops in Asia and Latin America. MLB should have sought out a company to make the uniforms for “America’s pastime” IN AMERICA!!!!!!!!!!

    Companies who ship jobs overseas instead of hiring Americans need to be taxed for it to where it levels the playing field for companies who make clothing in the USA and have to comply with minimum wage, OSHA and labor laws. You can’t pay 13 year olds 50 cents an hour to sew for 12 hours a day 6 days a week here.
