Rocawear is throwing their baseball diamonds in the sky — at Yankee Stadium!

On Wednesday Jay-Z's clothing company announced they will be sponsoring the New York Yankees for the 2012 season.

As part of the sponsorship, Rocawear will have branded signage in Yankee stadium and integrated promotions throughout the season.

Iconix Brand Group's EVP of Marketing, Jameel Spencer, says the partnership was natural:

"Jay-Z has been a long-time fan of the Yankees, regularly attends games and has even included his favorite team in song lyrics, so this was a natural partnership. Rocawear, along with Jay-Z are very excited to be working with the Yankees for the 2012 season. We feel another championship in ‘12!"

First the Yankees release not one but two fragrances and now this?

Kinda bizarre, no?

Rocawear Having Financial Issues?

Bad news for Rocawear staff members.

Jay Z’s company has laid off half of their employees!

The rap mogul actually sold his company back in 2007 to Iconix Brand Group but he stayed on as a shareholder.

He’s also responsible for product development as well as marketing and licensing.

Unfortunately, the company blames the bad global economy for the loss of all those jobs.

They had to let go of 28 of their 56 employees.

Times are tough.
