Yasiel Puig signs deal with Rudy Project sunglasses

Yasiel Puig continues to make headlines.

Rudy Project, Italian designers and engineers of sunglasses and helmets, has partnered with Puig to wear its technologically advanced eyewear for the rest of the 2013 season.

Puig is Rudy Project’s first premier MLB athlete endorser as the brand enters into the baseball market.

The 22-year-old Cuban phenom has rocketed into stardom after making his MLB debut with the Dodgers on June 3. With 44 hits in June, the second-most in MLB history for a player during their debut month, Puig became the first player in baseball history to win both the National League Rookie of the Month and Player of the Month Awards.

“Although Rudy Project is more commonly known in cycling and running sports, having an athlete like Yasiel Puig wear our sunglasses while playing for the Dodgers will allow our brand to be widely recognized as we enter into the baseball market,” said Rudy Project North America Co-owner Steve Wagner. “All of us within the company are proud that Puig chose Rudy Project eye wear and sunglasses to be his choice on and off the field. We’ll keep making the best eyewear in the world and hope Puig just keeps everyone in awe of his play.”

For more than 25 years, Rudy Project has designed sport sunglasses for elite and professional athletes, meeting the requirements for a wide variety of sports, including cycling, running, golf, shooting, tennis and fishing.
