July 25, 2023
Braintree, MA – July 25, 2023/ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – Ahead of the Appalachian League All-Star game tonight, OOFOS announced today it will be the Official Recovery Footwear of the Appalachian Baseball League. The Boston-based company has joined forces with one of the nation’s premier amateur baseball leagues for the 2023 summer season to support the country’s top collegiate players as they compete and prepare for their careers at the next level.
As part of the partnership, OOFOS will provide a pair of OOahh Sport Flex Slides to players and coaching staffs in the league as an essential tool to help promote recovery and enhance performance throughout the summer season. The brand will be on-site at the All-Star Game for attendees to experience OOFOS’ Active Recovery footwear. Special All-Star branded OOFOS product will also be an integrated part of the teams’ equipment and uniform during the Appalachian League All-Star Game.
OOFOS knows that these elite baseball players are coming off long collegiate seasons. Staying fresh and healthy is critical in long-term growth and development, which is why OOFOS is proud to support their efforts. OOFOS is always eager to support up-and-coming athletes as they strive to reach their highest potential, and that desire is reflected in this partnership.
This partnership is a natural extension of OOFOS’ investment in baseball, as the brand is also a proud partner of J.D. Martinez, an alumnus of the Appalachian League and the newest member of the OOcrew ambassador team. The 6x MLB All-Star and current designated hitter and outfielder for the LA Dodgers utilizes OOFOS every day for post-game and work out recovery. As a decorated veteran of the sport, Martinez recognizes the importance of taking care of yourself from the beginning of your career and credits his focus on recovery for his longevity in the sport. As a brand, the OOFOS team could not agree more.
“As the pioneer and leader in Active Recovery footwear, OOFOS has been dedicated to maximizing athlete performance through Active Recovery since our inception,” says Darren Brown, Head of Marketing for OOFOS. “We are honored to be a part of this elite league.” Active Recovery has become an increasingly important piece of the athlete puzzle at any stage of their careers, and OOFOS is proud to support the Appalachian League players by helping them recharge each day so they can perform their best and reach that next level.”
