The Scotts Company LLC announced Jan. 20 that it has entered into a partnership with Major League Baseball Properties (MLBP) that designates the Marysville-based company as the "Official Lawn Care Company" of Major League Baseball. The partnership is the largest sports relationship for Scotts.

As part of the multi-year partnership, Scotts will begin to sell grass seed blends and fertilizers that are featured in some of the most iconic MLB ballparks, according to a release from the MLBP. These products, designed by Scotts in consultation with the head groundskeeper at each ballpark, utilize the same Scotts varieties and technology used on the fields.

Scotts will begin selling grass seed blends and fertilizers this year for fans of the Boston Red Sox (Fenway Park), Chicago Cubs (Wrigley Field), Cincinnati Reds (Great American Ball Park), Philadelphia Phillies (Citizens Bank Park) and the St. Louis Cardinals (Busch Stadium). Other future club-specific products are in development, according to MLBP.

MLB executive vice president of business Tim Brosnan said that grass is more than just something to stand on for pro baseball clubs.

"The grass on the field of play is part of the very foundation of baseball, so this deal with Scotts, the worldwide leader in lawn care, is a natural fit for Major League Baseball," Brosnan said.

John Price, Scotts brand manager of lawns marketing, said the partnership is a natural fit for both organizations.

"This is a partnership between two great American brands -- the overlap between baseball fans and homeowners is immense," Price said. "Now fans can use the same Scotts technology and seed varieties used on Major League Baseball fields to achieve premium results on their home lawns."

In addition to the licensed products, Scotts also negotiated sponsorship agreements with the Atlanta Braves, Boston Red Sox, Chicago Cubs, Cincinnati Reds, Los Angeles Angels, Philadelphia Phillies, St. Louis Cardinals and Texas Rangers.
