Office Supply And Demand: W.B. Mason Joins MLB Roster With Multi-Year Deal

By Barry Janoff

October 4, 2017: Continuing its late-season marketing partnership drive, MLB said it has signed a multi-year deal with W.B. Mason, naming the family-owned private office supplier the presenting sponsor of replay review for the 2017 post-season as well as the official office products supplier for the league.

Although this is the first national sports partnership for the Brockton, MA-based firm, established in 1898, it already has local alliances with eight MLB teams.

Financial terms of the alliance with W.B. Mason were not released.

The W.B. Mason agreement is the fourth new MLB partnership formed since Sept. 18.

This week, YouTube TV was named the premiere presenting sponsor for the 2017 World Series.

Last month, MLB signed Camping World to a multi-layered alliance, including becoming the first presenting sponsor in the history of the American League and National League Championship Series.

Doosan signed with MLB to a multi-year deal, including presenting sponsor for the American League Division Series.

In addition, league partner T-Mobile was named the presenting sponsor for the National League Division Series.

"W.B. Mason signs are a distinctive presence at MLB ball parks in the eastern part of the country and this partnership aims to expand that recognition throughout the rest of the country," Noah Garden, evp-business for MLB, said in a statement.

“Being a part of post-season Replay Reviews presents W.B. Mason with a great opportunity for visibility at a time of heightened drama and focus for fans," said Garden.

Post-season marketing support for the deal includes replay review technicians wearing W.B. Mason-branded shirts and caps, stadium signage, digital advertising and social media platforms — including the official @MLBReplays account on Twitter — using the brand's tagline: "Who But . . . W.B. Mason."

W.B. Mason in 2016 reported revenue in excess of $1.6 billion.

After sponsoring the Boston Red Sox in 2003, W.B. Mason added the Philadelphia Phillies in 2004 and the New York Yankees in 2005.

"Baseball’s daily presence and broad reach is a perfect fit for us as we take this significant step in elevating our brand awareness to a national level."

Other W.B. Mason club partnerships include the Cleveland Indians, Washington Nationals, New York Mets, Pittsburgh Pirates and Tampa Bay Rays.

The company will have an in-stadium presence during the post-season in Fenway Park, Yankee Stadium, Progressive Field and Nationals Park, including W.B. Mason toy truck giveaways.

According to Leo J. Meehan III, president and CEO for W.B. Mason. “Our MLB team partnerships have been a major contributing factor to our growth over the past decade. Who else but MLB for our first national sports deal?
