The San Diego Padres use the Hypervolt Plus massage gun and other recovery technology devices and tools provided by Hyperice as they prioritize player wellness, recovery, and performance and prepare for another postseason run.
“Hyperice is at the forefront of recovery and their products have been a huge part of my routine,” said shortstop Fernando Tatís Jr., who will serve as the focal point for the partnership on and off the field. “Now our team and fans get to learn about the tools that help us all stay on top of our game as we kick off the season.”
Under the multi-year deal, Padres athletes and staff have access to Hyperice technology in dugouts, bullpens, and training areas at Petco Park. The Irvine, California-based recovery tech company reached a similar agreement with the New York Yankees and is also the Official Recovery Technology Partner of the MLB.
To showcase the importance of player health and recovery in order to ensure longevity and performance throughout the entire season, the Padres and Hyperice plan to create a content series dedicated to this topic.
Statement by Jim Huether, CEO of Hyperice
“The Padres have one of the most exciting and explosive rosters in all of baseball. Through this partnership, we will activate our MLB league deal with Hyperice tech in dugouts and bullpens, and amplify the league’s most electrifying player, Hyperice ambassador, Fernando Tatís Jr.,” said Jim Huether, Hyperice CEO.
“Our goal is to elevate performance for Padres players, and introduce cutting-edge Hyperice technology to the local San Diego community, Tatís followers and the global MLB fan base at large.”
Statement by Mark Rogow, Head Athletic Trainer of the San Diego Padres
“With a 162 game season, keeping our guys healthy and strong is no small task. Hyperice technology plays a key role in both guarding against injury and ensuring an athlete’s body is performing to its potential every day,” added Mark Rogow, Head Athletic Trainer of the San Diego Padres.
About the San Diego Padres
Founded in 1969 in San Diego, California, the San Diego Padres managed to win the West Division of the National League five times and progressed to the World Series twice in 1984 and 1998, but had trouble repeating those performances during the most recent years.
Led by All-MLB shortstop Fernando Tatís Jr., the franchise finally made its first postseason appearance since 2006 during the shortened 2020 season, when they defeated the St. Louis Cardinals during the wild-card round but then fell short to their local rivals, the Los Angeles Dodgers.
