Protective apparel firm Under Armour has announced a multi-year partnership with the Baseball Factory, an organisation that helps train high school baseball players for the college recruiting process.

Baltimore-based Under Armour will provide head-to-toe outfits for athletes as well as being title sponsor for tournaments and teams under the Under Armour All-America Baseball Tournament, National Tryout Tour, Cape Cod High School Classic and National Tournament Teams.

"The best high school-level baseball talent will now be playing in the best performance apparel and footwear available," said Under Armour's VP of brand marketing Steve Battista.

"We share with the Baseball Factory a dedication to authentic on-field performance, and we're excited to see what this talented pool of athletes can accomplish in their athletic career."

Steve Sclafani, CEO and founder of the Baseball Factory, added: "We have nothing but respect and admiration for the Under Armour brand and products.

"As the leader in our respective field as well, our players deserve the best in footwear and apparel and they will now receive it through our relationship."

This multi-year partnership follows Under Armour's recent Senior Bowl sponsorship deal.

Under Armour's products are sold worldwide and worn by professional football, baseball, and soccer players, as well as athletes in major collegiate and Olympic sports.

The company last month announced a 47.5% third-quarter revenue hike plus a 90.4% leap in quarterly net income.
