Kyle Farnsworth of the Tampa Bay Rays is playing in this years 2011 PSP World Cup. He is playing with the Alternative Sports Predators in D4. They have received sponsorship from Empire Paintball. Their sponsorship package includes the new Empire Axe, Prophecy Z2 loader, and Empire’s Ultra Evil paintballs, which by the way is some of the best paint you can buy hands down. It’s very interesting and awesome that a MLB player is participating in a major paintball tournament.
It sounds like the Alternative Sports Predators have landed a pretty good deal with Empire Paintball (Kee Action Sports). Keep an eye out for them at this years World Cup in D4. While your there, you may even be able to snag Kyle’s autograph? Empire will be hosting a meet and greet with Kyle on Saturday, October 22nd at 11AM at the Empire Tent.
With Empire Paintball sponsoring the Alternative Sports Predators, do you think that they are trying to bring the interest of other players of different sports into paintball? Could this be an opportunity to help influence paintball in the mainstream world? Talk about it in the comments.
