Yankees star slugger joins the biggest names in sports, music and television teaming up with JBL
Judge brings the noise. JBL brings the sound. The 2017 American League Rookie of the Year and baseball phenomenon is now the brand‘s newest ambassador. Aaron Judge will follow in the footsteps of other Yankees greats, including brand ambassador Mariano Rivera, as he’s welcomed into the team.
“From training in the weight room to stepping up to bat, music is a must in my routine. I have come to rely on the brand’s amazing sound quality—it’s ‘game on’ when you hear the music blasting through the brand’s speakers at Yankee Stadium. I am excited to carry on the legacy of Yankees greats as a brand ambassador,” said Judge.
Fans will find Judge and JBL all over New York City this summer. Whether hailing a taxi, riding the subway or catching a game at Yankee Stadium, New Yorkers and visitors to the city can expect never-before-seen content and displays featuring the All-Star slugger.
