TAMPA, Fla., Jan. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Majestic®, the official uniform provider of Major League Baseball, in partnership with MLB and its 30 clubs will launch its new Flex Base uniform system on-field in 2016. The new uniform design was developed through critical insights from over 50 Major League players, innovative fabric technologies and extensive wear testing over a two-year period. The result is a system that delivers maximum performance and mobility when the players need it most, during competition. The new Flex Base uniform system features include:
- 1) Flexibility
Engineered with new lighter weight twill technology that enhances freedom of movement and reduces the overall weight of the jersey by 10-20%.
- 2) Cooling
The lightweight mesh of the patented climate control Air BeltTM and mesh panel ventilation zones on each side of the jersey give players even more air circulation and controlled uniform movement.
- 3) Comfort
Breathable Cool Base® moisture-wicking fabric technology keeps players dry and comfortable.
- 4) Jersey/Pant Integration
The patented Air BeltTM and its tapered tail work in tandem with silicone motion grippers in the waistband to eliminate jersey bunching.
"The new Majestic Flex Base uniform system feels lighter, more flexible, and comfortable. Majestic nailed it! I look forward to competing in this uniform in 2016," says Noah Syndergaard, New York Mets.
"Two years of wear testing at every baseball position, countless hours of player feedback and fabric innovation have yielded the most cutting-edge and performance inspired uniform in the history of Major League Baseball, "said Jim Pisani, Majestic President. "We are confident this new Flex Base uniform system will further enhance the performance of these world-class athletes during 162+ MLB games every year."
"Majestic's expertise in fabric technologies and commitment to innovation has led to this next generation uniform system that our players will enjoy wearing and competing in for years to come," said Noah Garden, MLB Executive Vice President, Business.
Majestic's Flex Base Uniform System will debut at Spring Training next month.
