Reckitt Helps MLB Team Slam COVID-19 out of the ParkMay 12, 2021
Reckitt, parent company of Reckitt Professional, has been named an official partner of MLB’s Texas Rangers.
The agreement calls for Reckitt’s team of microbiologists and disinfection experts to work with Rangers officials in determining high-touch spots throughout the team’s home ballpark, Globe Life Field. Reckitt will provide the Arlington, Texas, stadium with a supply of U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-approved disinfection products, including those proven to be effective against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. Reckitt will also outfit Globe Life Field with dispensers containing Lysol Disinfecting Wipes for the team’s fans.
“With the Rangers welcoming fans back to the ballpark, establishing enhanced disinfection protocols is imperative,” said E. Yuri Hermida, Reckitt executive vice president of North America hygiene. “We are excited to work with the Rangers and bring our disinfection expertise to the club to help inspire fan confidence as they return to watch their favorite team compete in 2021 and beyond.”
