BATTER UP: All-Star Hanley Ramirez has been signed to a multiyear endorsement contract with New Balance. The Boston-based footwear and apparel brand will become Ramirez’s official on-field footwear and off-field footwear and athletic provider. To launch the partnership, Ramirez, a third baseman for the Miami Marlins, will auction off a pair of his custom New Balance cleats worn on opening day, with all proceeds benefiting The Marlins Foundation, an organization established to improve the lives of youth through education, the arts and baseball, with a special focus on children with special needs.
