Why Bars named official superfood snack bar of the Royal Oak Leprechauns

Royal Oak, Mich. (July 27, 2021) - Why Bars, the superfood snack bar developed for bar eaters, by bar eaters, announced today a marketing and promotional partnership with USA Prime Michigan’s Royal Oak Leprechauns baseball team, part of the Great Lakes Summer Collegiate League. Effective immediately, Why Bars is the official super food snack of the Leprechauns, providing bars for both the home and away teams to eat as part of their pre- and post-game nutritional routine. In exchange, the Leprechauns are posting a Why Bars banner on the outfield fence at Royal Oak Memorial Park, their home field, and will also be making promotional announcements about Why Bars during home games.

“We are thrilled to be teaming up with Why Bars, another Michigan-made organization,” said Mark Sackett, General Manager, The Royal Oak Leprechauns. “Our team arrives at the ballpark three hours before every game to warm up and prepare. Why Bars are that perfect food to help them get that quick, easy energy fix, allowing them to compete at their top performance level for the entire game and beyond.”

The Leprechauns are the latest baseball organization to partner with Why Bars and to use them as the preferred superfood snack food for their athletes. Why Bars is currently working with several MLB teams, including the Detroit Tigers, the New York Mets, and the Toronto Blue Jays, as well as both the MLB and minor league teams for the Tampa Rays and the Oakland A’s.

“Why Bars and baseball just go together,” said Chris Forte, CEO of Why Bars. “Working with the Leprechauns has been a true gift. Spending time with the team on and hearing how Why Bars help them break through the daily grind in the Great Lakes League has confirmed that these bars belong in every dugout, at every level. Why not?”
