Major League Baseball and RB, the maker of Lysol, have reached a multi-year partnership to help reinforce and promote healthy habits and disinfection protocols for the league’s players, staff and fans. According to a press release from Lysol, the partnership will leverage its 130 years of expertise and innovation to help maintain a high standard of healthy habits and hygiene for MLB personnel across the league, during both games and training sessions.

As 2020 MLB season has concluded and the league looks toward the first pitch of the 2021 campaign next spring, disinfection and germ prevention will continue to be top of mind to help protect those in ballparks across the league. MLB’s partnership with Lysol will include multiple touchpoints and areas of focus over the coming seasons.

Microbiologists and germ-killing experts from Lysol will work with MLB to reinforce ongoing protocols for disinfection in ballparks, with a focus on high-touch germ hotspots, to be put in place for the 2021 season.

Starting with the recently concluded 2020 MLB postseason, Lysol has provided professional grade disinfection solutions to MLB to be made available to players and staff in dugouts, bullpens and clubhouses as well as in fan areas. Lysol products were also included in postseason hotel welcome kits for players, staff and their families.

Moving forward, MLB and Lysol will work to identify opportunities to provide Lysol product and educational materials to schools across the country, engaging with young fans and promoting healthy habits in the classroom.

The US Environmental Protection Agency recently approved both Lysol Disinfectant Spray and Lysol Disinfecting Wipes for use against the novel coronavirus when used as directed on hard, non-porous surfaces.

“The addition of Lysol’s expertise and disinfecting products will help further strengthen efforts to create a safe environment to play Major League Baseball,” said Jon Coyles, MLB vice president, Drug, Health and Safety Programs. “As a brand that is synonymous with cleanliness, the Lysol brand will be an important partner in our management of the evolving pandemic as well as in amplifying health and safety messages around baseball.”
