G-Form named Official Protection Partner of the Boston Red Sox

G-Form products made available to Red Sox trainers and players

PROVIDENCE, R.I. - G-Form, the leader in athletic impact protection, is thrilled to announce a three-year partnership with the defending American League East Champion Boston Red Sox. The success, popularity, and visibility of the Red Sox franchise make it a perfect partner for G-Form to officially launch the new baseball line, in addition to the close proximity to the brand's Providence-based headquarters. Through the partnership, G-Form is now the Official Protection Partner of the Red Sox, providing innovative, non-traditional wearable protection options to players.

G-Form protection was made available to Red Sox players and trainers during Spring Training and will also be made available throughout the 2017 regular season. 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. The days of protection being uncomfortable are over. G-Form is so comfortable, players may decide to eliminate the "first base disrobing" currently required with the standard bulky hard pads.

"G-Form provides the ultimate impact protection gear across multiple sport categories and the Red Sox will assist us in having a major influence in the game of baseball at all levels," said Bob Burbank, G-Form CEO. "The Red Sox are fully committed to keeping their players safe and in top condition and we couldn't be more excited to be partners."

G-Form's patented machine washable RPT technology is changing the face of baseball protection. The soft, flexible padding only hardens when struck providing superior impact absorption compared to traditional hard-shell guards. With G-Form's body-mapped pad placement, flexible padding and moisture-wicking sleeves, players step onto the field protected, comfortable and with confidence knowing they will be safe without sacrificing performance - baseball protection just got better!

"We are excited to be working with G-Form and welcome them to the Red Sox family in 2017," said Red Sox Executive Vice President Troup Parkinson. "Player safety is important to us and we are pleased to be partners with a cutting-edge, local, New England company to help us with those efforts."

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.
