One of the music industry’s rising stars is very close to signing a deal with a Major League Baseball organization.

According to ESPN, the Chicago White Sox are nearing a deal with hometown artist Chance the Rapper to become a club ambassador. The deal will pay the rapper, whose real name is Chancellor Bennett, to be a part of club activities to help “market the team to a younger audience.”

This report comes just after the White Sox announced Wednesday that Chance the Rapper designed three new hats for the team. They will be available in a limited quantity for their home opener on Friday, where Chance will throw the first pitch.

If the deal goes through, it would make Chance only the second celebrity to score a paid ambassador role for a professional sports team, with Drake’s relationship with the Toronto Raptors being the first.

We’d say Chance is winning right now. Are you going to start putting on for the White Sox as well?
