Nike to take over as MLB uniform supplier beginning in 2020


NEW YORK — The swoosh is expected to be on the front of Major League Baseball uniforms starting in 2020.

Nike will take over from Majestic Athletic as Major League Baseball’s uniform supplier for the 2020 season. The swoosh logo likely will move to a more prominent position on jersey fronts from its current place on sleeves.

The 10-year deal announced Friday replaces an agreement announced in December 2016 for Under Armour to succeed Majestic. The online sportswear retailer Fanatics will manufacture and distribute licensed versions of the Nike uniforms and training wear to consumers.

Majestic has manufactured MLB batting practice jerseys since 1982 and has been the exclusive supplier of game uniforms since 2005. Before that, uniforms were manufactured by both Majestic and Russell Athletic.
