MLBPA Teams for Digital Content

New media partner will aim to empower aspiring student athletes on and off the field.

The Major League Baseball Players Association has partnered with Stack, a sports performance content and media company for student athletes, to launch the Players Choice Student Athlete Digital Network.

The new digital network will aim to provide aspiring student athletes of all ages with road maps to success, as well as their parents and coaches, through various channels hosted by active players, beginning with Paul Goldschmidt of the Arizona Diamondbacks and Chris Archer of the Tampa Bay Rays.

Each video posted will be co-produced by the players and will highlight stories from each player, nutrition, baseball-specific drills and how to make healthy decisions on and off the field. Additionally, each individual player channel will be committed to supporting and assisting parents as they navigate their student athlete’s journey.

“Our partnership with Stack will give young fans incredible access to the players’ views on training, mental preparation, off the field personal interests and more,”

says Evan Kaplan, director, licensing and business development, MLBPA.

The partnership also plans to expand by adding additional channels, including Spanish and Asian language player-specific channels.

“We are honored and excited to partner with the MLBPA and its players to tell their stories and inspire young athletes,” says Nick Palazzo, co-founder and chief executive officer, Stack. “Stack is all about empowering athletes with authentic inspiration and educational content. There is no better partner than the MLBPA and its great players to help us impact an entire generation of baseball players.”
