Yankees, Chinese noodle firm reach deal

NEW YORK -- The New York Yankees have reached a four-year sponsorship agreement with a Chinese instant-noodle company.

Uni-President Enterprises will get field-level signage between first base and the right-field foul pole. The Yankees say the company will also have a full-page ad in the team's game program.

Uni-President will support the QSL China Baseball League, the Yankees said Monday.

Yili Group, a Chinese dairy company, sponsored the Yankees in 2007.
