Japan Airlines System Corp. said Friday it has become an official sponsor of Major League Baseball.

The move follows the company’s signing of a contract late last year with New York Yankees outfielder Hideki Matsui for his appearance in its advertisements.

By becoming an official MLB sponsor, the holding company of Japan Airlines and Japan Air System can use the MLB logo in its ads.
