CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA (June 6, 2024) – The National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) announced Rawlings as the Official Softball of the NJCAA. The four-year agreement begins July 1, 2024, and continues through June 1, 2028.

“Our partnership with the NJCAA is indicative of our shared dedication to improving athletes’ on-field performance throughout their respective playing journeys,” said Mark Kraemer, director of sports marketing for Rawlings. “As the official softball of the NJCAA, Rawlings is proud to offer our authentic and game-changing technology to the talented athletes that comprise such a premier organization as the NJCAA.”

The Rawlings NJCAAFP softball will become the official softball starting with the 2024-2025 season and will include the NJCAA logo. These softballs have a raised seam with a polyurethane core and pro leather cover that gives just the right amount of tack, according to an NJCAA news release.

“The NJCAA is thrilled about this new partnership with Rawlings as the official softball of the association,” stated Dr. Christopher Parker, NJCAA President and CEO. “Rawlings is a top-of-the-line company providing high quality products within the sport realm at every level of play and the NJCAA is happy to join in on improving and revamping the products used at the two-year level.”  

The agreement calls for use of the official softball for all regional, district and national championship competitions throughout all three divisions of NJCAA softball. 

Rawlings is a supporter of the National Sporting Goods Association (NSGA).
