G-FORM TEAMS UP WITH PERFECT GAME FOR EXCLUSIVE PARTNERSHIP 

Brand Becomes Protective Gear Partner of Baseball’s Most Comprehensive Scouting Service 


PROVIDENCE, R.I., May 2, 2017 – G-Form is excited to announce a partnership with Perfect Game. The three-year deal will see G-Form become the Exclusive Protective Gear Partner of Perfect Game along with sponsorship of Perfect Game events. Perfect Game’s proven track record of developing future stars puts G-Form in a prime position to be protecting the next generation of MLB players. 


With innovation, advancement, and protection as shared organizational goals, G-Form and Perfect Game emerged as compatible partners in furthering the game of baseball. In today’s climate, safety is a top priority for leaders in sports, and as a result, protective measures are being implemented at younger ages and earlier stages of competition. Unlike its competitors in the baseball protection category, G-Form padding is lightweight and form fitting, moving seamlessly with a player’s body without hindering movement. As a gear provider and title sponsor to Perfect Game, G-Form will take baseball protection to new heights at every level from youth baseball to the Major Leagues, making it safer in the best way possible. 


“Advancing the game and improving protection in baseball at every age and skill level was a major goal for G-Form as we entered the sport,” said Michael De Leon, VP of Global Marketing, G-Form. “We could not be more excited to be growing our presence in the game by protecting tomorrow’s superstars.” 


G-Form saw the importance in protecting the game’s brightest young athletes while they are still competing at the amateur level. Meeting players at events provides the ideal opportunity to show young players protection doesn’t have to be uncomfortable or hinder their play. Showing players G-Form’s performance benefits will also have the added benefit of generating brand awareness among the future stars of the college and professional ranks. The G-Form baseball products provided include the Pro Extended Elbow, Pro Wrist Guard, Pro Sliding Shorts, Pro Sternum Shirt, and Pro Sternum Shirt with Back. 


“At Perfect Game we are always looking to stay innovative and keep our players as safe as possible,” said Brad Clement, CEO of Perfect Game. “G-Form was able to differentiate itself from the competition as our partner in wearable protection, and we knew this partnership would be ultimately beneficial to our players.” 


All G-Form protective wear is conveniently machine washable, waterproof, flexible and features Reactive Protection TechnologyTM (RPT) in which the pads harden on impact, absorbing and dissipating force before returning to their soft state. The complete baseball line is available at G-form.com, select Dick’s Sporting Goods locations, dickssportinggoods.com, and other premier baseball retailers. G-Form offers protective gear for every body and is available in youth, women’s and men’s sizes. To view the entire baseball line, click here.
