Mizuno partners with Atlanta Braves with Battery experience center


Atlanta Braves on Wednesday announced a partnership agreement with sports equipment giant Mizuno, which will include a showroom “experience center” at the adjoining Battery Atlanta entertainment district.

Mizuno, which has its U.S. headquarters in metro Atlanta, will be the team’s official “baseball gear partner,” and the brand will have prominent advertising within the new SunTrust Park, and offer a unique program to loan baseball gloves to fans to catch foul balls, the partners said in a news release.

The Braves said the Mizuno will have multiple baseball glove kiosks throughout SunTrust Park where fans can check out gloves and return them at no charge or purchase them after games.

The experience center will feature Mizuno products in a number of sports, including golf, baseball, running, softball and volleyball, the release said.

The Braves will open play for the inaugural season at SunTrust Park next year. The bulk of the first phase of the $550 million Battery mixed-use complex is slated to open in time for Opening Day.

“This partnership will give us the opportunity to continue to invest in and support the various causes and events that make this city such a great place while also solidifying Mizuno as the premium performance sports brand based in Atlanta,” Bob Puccini, Mizuno USA president, said in the release.
