PROGRAM 15 Announces Liquid I.V. as the Official Hydration Sponsor of the New Balance Future Stars Series

March 7, 2018

PROGRAM 15, the Official Global Grassroots Player Identification and Development Program for New Balance Baseball, selects Liquid I.V. as the official hydration sponsor for the Future Stars Series.

PROGRAM 15 is proud to announce Liquid I.V. has been selected as the Official Hydration Sponsor of the New Balance Future Stars Series National Events. The California-based nutrition company will contribute its signature Hydration Multiplier product at each National event to help keep players hydrated with a great-tasting, non-GMO electrolyte drink mix. Liquid I.V. utilizes the breakthrough science of Cellular Transport Technology (CTT) to deliver hydration to the bloodstream faster and more efficiently than water alone. One packet can provide the same hydration as drinking 2-3 bottles of water.

Liquid I.V. will also sponsor the Pitcher of the Week award. Winners will be selected by PROGRAM 15’s National Staff of former Major League and professional players, scouts, and coaches based on player statistics and videos submitted by PROGRAM 15 Regional Partner Programs.

Jeremy Booth, PROGRAM 15 Founder, CEO and President of Baseball Operations for The New Balance Baseball Future Stars Series, says, “Liquid I.V. is a non-GMO, health-oriented group that has advanced their technology to bring a better solution for rehydration of the body. It is a win to have them with us to help look after and advance the health of the players that take part in the Future Stars Series.”

Booth added, “Were ecstatic to partner with the LIV team to provide nutrition via rehydration to P15 and FSS athletes. LIV has taken great care to ensure their products will rehydrate and recharge those who drink them, and were excited for our players to have them on hand. We feel that Liquid I.V. is a company that we can grow with. You can find them in just about any store around the country and it’s only a matter of time before every athlete around the country is drinking their products.”

Liquid I.V. Co-Founder Brandin Cohen said, “Players are getting smarter about what goes into their bodies, and we are excited about helping young athletes to stay hydrated and healthy. Smart athletes don’t settle for the average, sugar packed sports drink anymore. Players want to re-fuel their bodies with science backed products that use clean, premium ingredients. We hope to be able to provide a product that assists in that goal.”

The Future Stars Series is the global initiative between New Balance and Program 15 to elevate the game of baseball by providing amateur baseball players across all economic levels an opportunity to reach their full potential through the training, development, and guidance of former MLB players, scouts, and coaches.

Amateur players identified by PROGRAM 15’s National Staff of former Major League and professional players, scouts and coaches are submitted to New Balance Baseball for advanced opportunities and potential selection to regional and national team rosters for New Balance sponsored events.

ABOUT LIQUID I.V.:
