Trevor Bauer x Lids

All-star Cincinnati Reds pitcher and 2020 Cy Young Award finalist Trevor Bauer has partnered with Lids, the leading sports retailer.

In the 25-year history of Lids, Bauer is the first MLB player to partner with the company. Lids will become the exclusive headwear retailer for Bauer.

Bauer caught attention for his personal merchandise and custom cleats during the 2020 baseball season, and he will unveil several limited-edition custom hats, shirts and customizations throughout the year, all of which will be available nationwide.

Bauer said he has been a Lids customer for many years.

“As I’ve become more invested in design and branding in recent years, the opportunity to collaborate with such an iconic retailer, especially as its first MLB athlete partner, is really meaningful,” Bauer said.

Lawrence Berger, co-founder and partner at Ames Watson and Chairman of FanzzLids Holdings, said Bauer is equally impressive on and off the mound.

“Lids has been the leading headwear retailer for years, in large part due to the popularity of baseball hats, and we cannot think of a better individual to be our first MLB athlete partner than Trevor. We look forward to combining his passion for design with our talented creative team to make some incredible merchandise and content,” Berger said.

Bauer is the reigning MLBPA Players Choice NL Outstanding Pitcher and a finalist for the 2020 National League Cy Young Award, which will be announced Wednesday.

Bauer puts his season up against those of Jacob deGrom, who won the award in 2018 and 2019, and Yu Darvish, who debuted in 2012 with Bauer and is eyeing his first Cy Young Award, as well.

Bauer posted his career-best earned run average in 2020 of 1.73, second best in baseball only behind Cleveland Indians ace Shane Bieber. He won five games and anchored a Reds pitching staff that landed the seventh seed in the playoffs.

He also garnered attention for contributions to baseball as a whole with his self-titled YouTube channel and Momentum, an athlete-driven media company with the goal of connecting fans to the game.

Momentum uses authentic player stories to affect the public perception of baseball. With over 500 original pieces of audio and video, Momentum has built popular series like Bauer Bytes and Live At Bats. Its content has also been distributed through digital channels and partners like PlayersTV and FOX Sports.

T-Pain is nearing 1 million Spotify streams which has received early acclaim courtesy of Billboard, The Fader, Hype Fresh Mag, Daily Loud, and more.

Abu Dhabi x World Ocean Summit 2019

Government of Abu Dhabi Announced as Host of World Ocean Summit 2019.

This year’s World Ocean Summit, held in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, has brought together over 500 leaders from the private sector, civil society and government to explore the development of a sustainable ocean economy through innovative financing and technologies as well as bold new efforts to implement the world’s sustainability commitments. It is the largest World Ocean Summit yet, and underscores The Economist Group’s doubling down on this topic, in no small part through announcing the launch of the World Ocean Initiative, an effort that will translate the momentum and focus of the World Ocean Summit into a year-round programme on the ocean that leverages the full capabilities of The Economist Group.

Carrying this momentum forward, The Economist Group is pleased to announce the Government of Abu Dhabi as the host of World Ocean Summit 2019. Abu Dhabi has a close relationship with the ocean, through its history as a centre for pearl diving, its resilient coral reefs and its mangroves sea grass meadows that provide valuable services in the face of climate change.

Bringing the World Ocean Summit to Abu Dhabi presents a unique opportunity to amplify the conversations on the sustainable development of the ocean in the Middle East and the wider region, and equally provides a platform for Abu Dhabi to share its innovative approaches to conservation, and developing a vibrant and sustainable ocean economy, with the rest of the world.

The challenges facing the ocean are global, and the World Ocean Summit 2019, which will be held March 5th-7th, will bring the bold discussions and diverse audiences that characterise the World Ocean Summit into a new part of the world, and host stimulating conversations on the topics of ocean financing, governance and innovation. A key priority for World Ocean Summit 2019 will be to foster greater cooperation and collaboration between different groups, and to serve as a bridge between the development of economic policies and protecting the marine environment. It intends to build a truly global community for the creation of a sustainable ocean economy. Through the World Ocean Initiative, The Economist Group will build a programme of work across these topics and themes throughout 2018 to ensure that we continue to play a role in fostering progress against the global community’s commitments on the ocean.
