New Vinci Glove Series: Optimus

Friday, January 11th, 2013

The BEST Vinci Pro Gloves Yet!

The Vinci Research and Development department has been working for the past two years to bring you the newest Vinci Pro glove series, the Optimus series. The Optimus series already made its way into the Major Leagues as gloves in this series were tested throughout the 2012 season at the Major League level.

Starting Monday, four new gloves from this series will be made available to the public for the first time. The Optimus JV, Optimus BM, Optimus BV and Optimus JC gloves will be the first in this series available for purchase with more to follow.

Every glove in this new series features a new top of the line leather, never before used in a Vinci glove. The new leather is exclusively available in Walnut color. This leather has proven to be very durable and provides a unique feel that we think Vinci Pro fans will appreciate. Gloves in the Optimus series are also made with rolled welting which makes for a better looking glove. By far, this is the best Vinci Pro Baseball glove series to date, which is why it was named “Optimus,” which is the Latin word meaning “BEST.”

The Optimus JV comes in Walnut with a black mesh back and black lace. This 11.5 inch glove is great for any infielder looking to up their game in style and the sophisticated look is just the beginning! With an I-Web style of web and an open back this could just be your next Vinci glove! The pocket design is just right for quick catch and release of the ball during play.

Outfielder’s will enjoy playing ball with the new Vinci Optimus BM Baseball Glove. Vinci’s signature deep pocket design makes catching fly balls a cinch and the longer length of this glove helps extend player reach and range. This 13 inch Vinci features a closed back design and dual H-Post web style and it comes in walnut with a black mesh back.

Vinci’s new 11.5 inch Optimus BV will make any pitcher the center of attention with its walnut leather, open back, black lace, and solid web design.

Made for both Infield and Pitcher positions, the Vinci Optimus JC is an all-leather glove with open back and Net-T web in an 11.5 inch size.

These four gloves being made available on Monday will be carried stock in the sizes noted above, but can be customized in sizes up to 13.5 inches. Vinci will also allow color customization on gloves in this series with multiple color options for the lace and mesh. Mesh colors available include navy blue, gray and black. The name personalization feature is also available for an additional charge. Call Vinci Pro at 1.888.529.6864 for details on glove customization.

Initially, gloves in the new Vinci Pro Optimus Series will be available at lower, special introductory pricing. Not only that, but each glove also comes with a FREE Vinci glove bag and Vinci glove conditioner.

You Could WIN a Vinci Glove This Month!

Tuesday, October 9th, 2012

Starting today, October 9, 2012, Vinci fans on Facebook can enter for a chance to win a new Vinci Baseball Glove in the Vinci Baseball Glove Giveaway Sweepstakes. The featured giveaway glove is Vinci’s model number JC3333-22 in black leather with red lace.

The JC3333-22 is constructed of our 5 Oz. steer hide leather. This glove maintains it shape very well over time. All Vinci Pro gloves are the finest handcrafted gloves on the market and are designed with quality in mind. The Vinci Mesh 22 Series baseball gloves utilize double reinforced mesh backing. The high quality steer-hide leather along with double mesh back allows the gloves to be durable, yet playable and retain their shape longer. Our signature Vinci exclusive deep pocket design allows for better control and less spin. This glove also comes with heavy-duty thumb and pinky loops, along with thumb and pinky supports which help retain the glove shape. The high-quality Deer Tanned Cowhide interior leather lining finger stalls are specially treated for a more comfortable feel. The glove comes shipped to the winner with our special glove conditioner. Utilizing our glove conditioner dramatically decreases break in time on our gloves and protects the glove for years of use. We pre-treated the leather to allow for quicker break in time, and this glove is one of the lightest on the market today.

This glove retails for $159 on VinciPro.com but you could win it!

Entering is even easier than ever because the only item on the entry form is for a valid email address that we can use to contact you at should you win. You can enter once each day and even earn Bonus Entries when you share the link to entry that is assigned to you at the point of entry. Share as much or as little as you like, but for every user who clicks the link you shared and enters using it, you get an extra entry! We have included this in hopes that you will tell your friends, tell your family, tell your teammates and tell your coaches!

Carlos Torres Gets His Third Win Of The 2012 Season

Monday, August 27th, 2012

Carlos Torres is the ultimate representation of a Vinci Guy. Hard working, loyal, seeks perfection, AND a team player. Just the type of person you want on your team.

Carlos has been wearing Vinci equipment since 2008. He was and is a friend of Derek Rodriguez. Derek was pitching for the Triple A Chicago White Sox affiliate, the Charlotte Knights at the time. We had plans to meet Derek after the game, but just so happened that the game was rained out. It allowed us some more time with him, and his friend Carlos Torres, who we had never met, or even heard of before. I was in another meeting, where I got off the train, went home to change, and met with Derek and Carlos. It didn’t take long for all of us to hit it off. Only after a few minutes I think we felt comfortable. In discussion, my dad, Pete #22 offered to give Carlos a glove. Carlos agreed, but only if he liked it, then he would wear it. In contact with Carlos, we went back and forth to develop the CT-82M baseball glove model, in which we have named after him.

Fast forward  four years later, and Mr. Torres is still with us. During that time period he got called up to the Chicago White Sox for two seasons. Last year he pitched for the Yomiuri Giants in the Japanese Baseball league. This season Carlos is back in the United States, pitching in relief for the Colorado Rockies. On Saturday, August 25, 2012 he pitched 2 and 1/3 innings of shutout relief to get his third win of the season.

Not only has Carlos Torres been a strong supporter of our products, he has become a friend, really just like family.
