Sources: Under Armour's MLB deal pushed back

From ESPN - April 16, 2018

Major League Baseball's transition to Under Armour uniforms, which had been slated to take place next season, has been pushed back to 2020, multiple sources have confirmed to ESPN.com.

Majestic, which currently makes MLB uniforms, will remain as the on-field uniform outfitter in 2019.

The news is the latest in a series of back-and-forth scheduling moves regarding the Under Armour transition. When MLB's apparel contract with the Maryland-based company was announced in 2016, the plan was for Under Armour to take over as the on-field uniform supplier in 2020. That timetable was moved up last spring, when MLB commissioner Rob Manfred announced that the transition would take place in 2019. Monday's development restores the original 2020 target date.

An Under Armour spokesman said: "We have nothing to report at this time."
