Nina Agdal lands the gig as New Era's first female brand ambassador

We're used to Nina Agdal making her mark in front of the camera, but it looks like our 2014 SI Swimsuit cover model is also about to rule the mound. 

New Era, a global lifestyle brand best known for its team cap collections, signed the supermodel to be the new MLB ambassador for the 2016 women's collection. Nina joins the MLB roster, which includes names like Bryce Harper, Buster Posey and Andrew McCutchen, as the first female ambassador.

Nina will appear in promo material to showcase the new cap collection and the 5th & Ocean MLB Women's apparel line this season. The campaign will officially launch on Opening Day in all New Era flagship stores and in all 30 MLB ballparks, as well as in a one-month promotion for Locker Room by Lids in select Macy's stores. 

“We feel that Nina was a perfect fit for our brand. New Era encourages people to truly express their personal style and individuality through its products and Nina truly exemplifies this vision,” said Tony DeSimone, category director baseball at New Era Cap. “We’re thrilled to have her as our first female ambassador and an official a member of the New Era family.”
