EyeBlack Becomes Official Licensee of NPF


Rockville, Md. – EyeBlack, the company that started a sports revolution by combining logos, phrases and bible verses with EyeBlack, announced today they have inked a licensing deal with National Pro Fastpitch (NPF), becoming an official licensee of the only professional softball league in the United States.  EyeBlack will create custom products for the league and its teams that can be worn by athletes in games, and used as promotional items to boost fan experiences at games and NPF events.

The licensing deal allows EyeBlack to produce its patent products with the NPF logo, and marks of the four teams in the league; Akron Racers, Carolina Diamonds, Chicago Bandits and USSSA Pride.  In addition, players will be authorized to wear EyeBlack in games.  NPF will utilize EyeBlack as a promotional tool to engage with fans through various initiatives including gate giveaways during their Championship Series (August 23 – August 26), and  NPF’s Back to School tour which kicks-off in September and runs through December.

“Having EyeBlack become an official licensee of NPF is great for our players and fans,” said Gaye Lynn Wilson, NPF’s Vice President of Development.  “Not only is EyeBlack a functional sports product for players, it’s also a great marketing product we can use to engage fans through various promotions in and out of season.”

EyeBlack’s partnership with NPF continues its growth within professional softball.  In March, Chicago Bandits pitcher Monica Abbott became a professional athlete ambassador for EyeBlack, collaborating with the company to design her own product line.  In September 2011, EyeBlack inked a deal with softball superstar Jennie Finch, which served as the company’s first entrée in to the sport of women’s softball. Jennie’s “Ace” line along with Monica’s custom EyeBlack and NPF products are all available for purchase at

EyeBlack president and founder Peter Beveridge said, “Teaming-up with NPF is a perfect match for EyeBlack, and we are excited to begin producing products for the league’s players and fans.  NPF consists of the best softball players in the world and they will be great ambassadors for our company.  We look forward to providing products that will help the players perform better, and give fans EyeBlack they can wear in the stands to support their favorite team or player.”
