BETMGM SIGNS SOFTBALL SUPERSTAR AJ ANDREWS AS BRAND AMBASSADOR
First female Gold Glove winner joins sports betting leader
Jersey City, NJ – March 31, 2022 – BetMGM, a leading sports betting and digital gaming company, announced today the signing of AJ Andrews, Major League Baseball Network (MLBN) personality and the first female to win the Rawlings Gold Glove Award, as the company’s newest brand ambassador and content creator. Throughout the upcoming baseball season, Andrews will appear on behalf of BetMGM in various broadcast opportunities, social media content and participate in fan events.
“I am so grateful for the opportunity to dive further into the sports betting industry as a brand ambassador for BetMGM,” said Andrews. “As I continue to advocate for more opportunities for women in sports, I’m excited to have this new platform to creatively share and inspire others.”
Andrews’ impact on the sports scene started at Louisiana State University where she led the Lady Tigers to two Women’s College World Series appearances. She began her professional career with the Chicago Bandits in 2015 and, the following year, made history with the Akron Racers as the first woman to win a Rawlings Gold Glove Award, an award previously exclusive to the best defensive fielders in Major League Baseball. Andrews continues to garner awards and accomplishments such as the Rally Spike Award as the league’s stolen base leader and was featured in ESPN The Magazine’s The Body Issue.
Off the field, Andrews works diligently with community non-profit organizations to help mentor and build confidence in young women. Andrews has been recognized as an on-air talent as Host of the ESPN special “Unapologetic: The Black Female Athlete,” MLBN’s “Play Ball,” and creator of empowHer motivational empowerment discussions.
Matt Prevost, Chief Revenue Officer, BetMGM, said, “AJ is an all-around powerhouse who has been a trailblazer in sports throughout her career. BetMGM is proud to welcome her to the team as a new personality in sports betting.”
