MaximBet Sportsbook Partners with Colorado Rockies Outfielder Charlie Blackmon
Colorado Rockies All-Star Charlie Blackmon and MaximBet Sportsbook agreed to terms to make Blackmon the first active MLB player to have a partnership with a sports betting operator.
Blackmon becomes MaximBet’s first active player from the four major U.S. sports. The four-time All-Star will be featured in MaximBet’s upcoming marketing campaigns, fan events, promotions and social media content.
“As I learned more about MaximBet, I knew this absolutely was the right brand for me,” Blackmon said in a media release. “MaximBet has really attached itself to the local Colorado community, and I cannot wait to have some fun with MaximBet and surprising fans with incredible ‘money can’t buy’ experiences all season.”

Blackmon has become one of the most renowned players in Rockies history. He ranks second all-time in hits, games played and at-bats.
Blackmon is also third in runs scored and total bases. In 2017, he was the NL Batting Champion with a .331 average.
Colorado sports betting players have been able to wager on Blackmon’s exploits since he has played his entire career with the Rockies after they selected him in the second round of the 2008 draft.
“Charlie is one of the most revered Rockies players of all time, and his style and career success makes him a perfect fit for MaximBet,” Daniel Graetzer, CEO of MaximBet, said in a media release. “We are thrilled to welcome Charlie to the MaximBet family. We look forward to him hitting it out of the ballpark for us as we continue to grow in Colorado and across the country.”
To celebrate the partnership, custom artist Solesby Sir designed numerous baseball-themed items for Blackmon, including a custom co-branded Rawlings glove, Nike cleats and a New Era Rockies hat. Solesby Sir also played to Blackmon’s affinity for fishing, designing a personalized tackle bag, fisherman’s scissors and a cooler.
