Head into any dugout and ask players who threw them their first baseball or who ignited their love for the game – we’d bet you’d hear some version of ‘dad’, ‘pops’, or ‘my old man’ pretty often. For MLB’s Father’s Day games, Under Armour athletes will honor the fathers and father figures in their lives who have been a motivating force since day one.
Bryce Harper will pay homage to his dad in his third signature cleat, the Harper 3, while other athletes, including Ozzie Albies and Andrew Benintendi, will wear the UA Yard.
Both special makeup cleats being worn on Sunday feature a graphic that harkens back to days of comic books and comic strips to honor one of the first “superheroes” in our players’ lives on this special day.
In addition, the upper on the heel for the Harper 3, and on the tongue for the Yard, have a graphic that reads “______ is My Hero!!” so athletes can customize the cleat by writing in the name of the person who has inspired them as they celebrate Father’s Day 2018.
Look for the UA Harper 3 to release in both Mid and Low options later this Fall 2018 at select UA retailers and UA.com.
