NEW Vinci Bat Pack

Monday, September 15th, 2014

Vinci, makers of high quality baseball gloves and equipment, announces the launch of its first bat backpack.

The Vinci Bat Backpack is a stylish all-in-one carry system for ball players everywhere – from little league baseball to the softball field to the college diamond.

The Vinci Bat Backpack offers a variety of key components, including a waterproof bottom, a large compartment for helmet and gear and an ergonomic design with padded shoulder straps. It includes double heavy-duty fence hooks for hanging with a separated zipper opening and storage pocket. Breathable mesh padded backing allows for the comfortable transportation of equipment. The bag is designed to hold up to the weather with a waterproof bottom that makes it easy for cleaning.

“After years of research, we’ve come up with a bag that can be used by most all ages,” says Peter J Vinci, CEO of Vinci. “Our goal was to make a durable, quality bag for a reasonable price. This bag is a great compliment to our high quality baseball and softball gloves.”

At 21.5″ X 15″ X 9″, the Vinci Bat Backpack is large enough to carry two bats, cleats, gloves, uniform with room to spare for a laptop. The drop down ventilated shoe compartment fits large shoe sizes. The removable cell phone case on back strap can accommodate almost any phone.
The front pocket fits baseball glove and batting gloves with an inside mesh pocket and a shelf to place the glove during game.

The only thing the bag doesn’t deliver is a space for users to change into their uniforms!

Pre orders are being taken now at http://www.vincipro.com/Vinci-bat-batpack.html. The expected delivery date is late September, 2014.

Vinci In The Movies

Tuesday, February 11th, 2014

Check out Vinci glove in this movie.

https://nuhofilmfest.com/ANeverWasBeen

From the NUHO Film festival

“A Never-Was-Been was written and directed by Sean Pamphilon an Emmy Award winning producer and Peabody Award winner who has already made some of the most influential sports documentaries in recent years.

The most influential of Seans work The United States of Football boasts the 2nd ever largest theatrical release for a sports documentary. ESPN 30 for 30 film Run Ricky Run also received wild acclaim and became one of the highest viewed episodes in the entire series with nearly 1 million viewers tuned in for the premier alone. Sean Pamphilion was also responsible for breaking the BountyGate scandal surrounding the New Orleans Saints in 2012.

Sean is also credited with directing Playing with Rage with Royce Toni in 2006, the story of the mothers, daughters, sisters and warriors who play on the 100%u2032s of professional football teams in America.

Sean began his career as a production assistant for ESPN after graduating from Brown University in 1993. From 1995-2010, he has had his films, documentaries and essays featured on ESPN, FOX, ABC, NBC, USA, CNN, and the NFL Network over 50 times.

In an effort to honor one of his childhood heroes, the late George Plimpton, filmmaker Sean Pamphilon has decided to continue Mr. Plimptons%u2019 brand of participatory storytelling by documenting his experience as a middle-aged man trying to re-capture glory that never actually existed. At age 11, Sean Pamphilon was diagnosed with a circulatory disease that robbed him of his speed and left him with chronically swollen ankles only a mother or pregnant woman could love. As a freshman at age 14, Sean decided to get into high school baseball, but unfortunately tore his rotator cuff. A year later, during his sophomore season, he threw his last competitive pitch after yet another arm injury.

Over a quarter century since playing in a competitive baseball game, we find Sean a few months shy of his 44th birthday, bloated, and 50 pounds overweight. With a soft landing atop Twinkies and fast food, Pamphilon had hit rock bottom. What does a man-who peaked at 12, athletically do when he passes over the apex of life hill and is headed down the other side? Does he pick up the pace toward diabetes and a steady decline in health? Or does he lose 50 pounds, get down to his college weight, hit the batting cage and go play baseball with a bunch of players he has no business competing against?”

Vinci Sports Sunglasses Winner!

Friday, September 6th, 2013

While Vinci Pro Baseball is known for its high-quality baseball and softball gloves, Vinci also manufactures several other products that are helpful to players including glove conditioner, softball pants, and Vinci sports sunglasses.  Vinci sports sunglasses are not only great protection for baseball players, they are great for those who play other sports as well including golfers, skiers, runners, hunters and more.  These Vinci sports sunglasses are made with a wrap around design which gives athletes a larger range of view and protects the eyes from debris.  The protection doesn’t stop there.  Made with polycarbonate lenses, these sunglasses are impact resistant and also provide 100% protection against UVA and UVB rays.

Each pair of Vinci sports sunglasses comes with three sets of lenses and the frames are available in red, grey, white and black.  Perhaps the coolest aspect of these sunglasses is the “pop out” feature. When facing impact, the lenses tend to “pop out” which can protect the face from injury it may otherwise sustain when wearing other sunglasses.

Recently, Vinci Pro Baseball, gave fans a chance to win a pair of these unique, high-quality sports sunglasses.  Entrant were able to select the frame color of the pair that they wanted to win, then enter to win it.  The entire sweepstakes was run via an application on the Vinci Baseball Facebook page.  We are happy to announce that Mark T. is the winner of the Vinci Baseball Sunglasses Sweepstakes 2013.  Mark will be hearing from Vinci soon!
