All-Star Tim Lincecum Earns His Red Bull Wings and License to Fly

He already has a license to blow hitters away. By joining the Red Bull family, Tim Lincecum also now has a license to take flight


LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 07/22/10 -- He already has a license to blow hitters away. By joining the Red Bull family, Tim Lincecum also now has a license to take flight. While in town to play the Los Angeles Dodgers, Lincecum christened his Red Bull wings by stepping into a wind tunnel at Universal CityWalk for a few aerobatic maneuvers.

In officially announcing his partnership with Red Bull, the two-time defending National League Cy Young award winner had this to say: "I've always been impressed by the innovative spirit of Red Bull and how they push the limits. I look forward to putting my new wings to use both on and off the field."

With nicknames such as "The Franchise" and "The Freak," Tim's signature delivery, overpowering repertoire of pitches, and presence on the mound -- along with an emerging personality off the field -- have positioned him as one of baseball's top figures. He joins a Red Bull athlete roster of high performers around the world, including Super Bowl Champion Reggie Bush, Vancouver Olympic gold medalists Shaun White and Lindsey Vonn, and the Boston Celtics' Rajon Rondo.

Lincecum, the two-time defending National League Cy Young Award winner, has gone 50-21 with a 2.95 ERA in 109 career starts for the Giants since making his Major League debut in 2007. The 26-year-old has led the National League in strikeouts in both of the last two seasons and has been selected as an N.L. All-Star in each of the last three campaigns. The righthander is 10-4 with a 3.18 ERA in 20 starts for the Giants in 2010.

A Washington state native, Lincecum attended the University of Washington where he earned the 2006 Golden Spikes Award, presented annually to the nation's best amateur player.
