Wilson will launch the new line July 22, 2020. “Love the Moment” products are available in the United States at wilson.com/en-us/autism-speaks.
“Autism affects a great number of people in the U.S., and that includes many of the baseball and softball families that we serve,” said Michael Markovich, Global Commercial Director, Wilson Baseball and Softball. “We know that every person with autism has unique strengths and challenges, and many may feel misunderstood or excluded. We hope that through this partnership with Autism Speaks, we can play a part in creating more understanding and acceptance of people with autism.”
“We’re thrilled to continue our relationship with Wilson, and we are incredibly thankful for this ongoing partnership” said Autism Speaks Strategic Initiatives and Innovations Officer Lisa Goring. “Now more than ever, the autism community needs our support and that of our partners. This partnership will help us provide for people with autism and their families in urgent need of resources and fuel our continued commitment to building a kinder, more inclusive world.”
