Marlins shortstop Hanley Ramirez continues to be in good company. He’s joining a dozen other MLB stars in endorsing Sharp Electronics – Sharp Aquos is MLB’s “official High Definition television” – the company announced Friday.
Ramirez will make appearances and do promotions on behalf of Sharp at local retailers and events. He joins a roster of Sharp endorsers that includes David Ortiz of the Boston Red Sox; Mariano Rivera and Joba Chamberlain of the New York Yankees; Matt Holliday of the Colorado Rockies; and Prince Fielder of the Milwaukee Brewers.
In honor of the new deal, Ramirez is scheduled to appear at the Brandsmart in North Miami, 4320 NW 167th Ave., from noon to 1 p.m., next Friday, Aug. 15.
Sharp, which signed a deal with MLB Properties last year, sponsors the National and American League players of the month and Hank Aaron awards. The company also has a sweepstakes running for a trip to the World Series and HD TVs.
