According to Sports Business Journal, MLB Chief Revenue Officer Noah Garden explained the reason for the change. “We’ve been watching this category for a while and waiting for it to mature to the point where we can get comfortable with it,” said Garden.

Chances are your skincare routine needs to adjust to the extreme heat and sun exposure during peak summertime.
