It's been quite a year for slugging second baseman Dan Uggla. His torrid hitting has made him a regular feature of nightly MLB highlights shows and helped his Florida Marlins emerge as a surprise contender for the NL East title. Now his high-profile on-field heroics have earned him another choice reward: a promotional deal with the makers of his favorite protein bar, Supreme Protein®.
Uggla discovered the bars less than a year ago and was quick to seek out the bar's makers in order to secure a dependable supply. When the company offered him all the bars he could eat, plus a sweet promotional deal, Dan was quick to sign on. "This relationship is a natural for me," he says. "I aspire to be the best player I can be, and the best player among my peers. That's something Supreme Protein® has already achieved. Supreme Protein® is easily the category leader in both taste and quality."
"I eat two Supreme Protein® bars a day," the slugging second baseman says. "The flavor is sensational and each one has all the ingredients to deliver the high nutritional profile I need to perform at a high level."
Likewise, Dan's tremendous on-field production has been something the Marlins can count on, day after day. An impact player literally from day one of his rookie season in 2006, Uggla has solidified his station among the game's elite second basemen. His stat line in mid-June (20 HRs, 50 RBI, a .288 BA) has many observers regarding him as a worthy starter at second base in next month's 2008 All Star Game at Yankee Stadium.
Uggla's legions of fans point to his consistency as perhaps his greatest attribute. Unlike many highly regarded rookies who experience significant ups and downs over their first few years, Uggla has been a reliable source of offensive firepower on an every-day basis. Again, Uggla gives some credit to Supreme Protein®.
"During the baseball season, it is important for me to maintain lean body mass and weight so that I can maintain my strength throughout the course of the season," Dan says. "Supreme Protein® bars allow me to get the protein and nutrients that I need so that I can recover from my workouts faster and exercise longer before feelings signs of fatigue. I've definitely noticed a difference since I've added Supreme Protein® bars to my routine."
