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!

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.

Wednesday, July 25th, 2012

Vinci Baseball unveils new products on a fairly regular basis. New technology and innovative materials help Vinci to continue improving products to aid players in playing their best.

Vinci’s latest gloves to come out are sure to improve a player’s game. Check out these new 22 Series gloves!

The Vinci JC3333-22 is a 11.5 inch baseball glove for Infielders and Pitchers that features a black mesh back with tan lace and welting. It is designed with Vinci’s exclusive deep pocket design to allow players better control and less spin. The pre-treated 5 oz. steer hide leather is accented by the functional heavy-duty thumb and pinky loops which help the glove retain its shape and the sturdy stays in the fingers and thumb which help the glove retain its shape through the years. The Vinci JC3333-22 is also available with red lace and welting. Both styles have a quick break in time and have a comfortable feel thanks to the high quality deer tanned cowhide interior leather lining finger stalls.

Another new glove from Vinci Baseball is the PJV-22 for Outfielders. The high quality steer-hide leather lines the double reinforced mesh backing to give players a glove that will hold its shape over time but yet be playable in the moment. This glove is also manufactured with Vinci’s signature deep pocket design and made with all the same accents that the JC3333-22 is made with giving outfielder’s the same comfort, durability and protection. The PJV-22 comes in a black mesh back with black lace.

Catcher’s don’t fret, Vinci didn’t leave you out in this new series! The Vinci RLN49-22 Catcher’s Mitt comes in black or black with red lace, both in a 33.5 inch size with traditional Web style ad open glove back with finger shield. This pre-treated glove is constructed of thinner, 5 oz. steer hide to provide a softer feel. Shock pads are strategically sewn into the lining of these gloves for maximum palm protection. As with the other gloves in this series, the RLN49-22 Catcher’s Mitts are designed with Vinci’s deep pocket design and heavy duty thumb and pinky loops as well as thumb and pinky supports to help the glove maintain its shape over time. Just like the JC3333-22 and the PJV-22, this catcher’s mitt has an interior made up of high quality deer tanned hide to provide players comfort and functionality in their Vinci Baseball gloves.

All Vinci gloves come with special glove conditioner which helps speed up the break in time and protect your glove for years to come. Vinci has become a name you can trust for the highest quality gloves that will last and at the competitive price of $159 each, the Vinci Series 22 Gloves offer value and quality!

Brayan Villarreal Wears Vinci Baseball Glove for MLB

Brayan Villarreal Wears Vinci Baseball Glove For MLB

Vinci, makers of high quality baseball gloves and equipment, welcomes Brayan Villarreal as the latest MLB player to wear a Vinci baseball glove.

Villarreal began his professional career in 2006, pitching for the VSL Marlins/Tigers. He was ranked among the top 20 Detroit Tigers prospects by Baseball America following the 2009, 2010, and 2011 seasons. Villarreal made the Tigers out of spring training in 2011, bypassing the Triple-A level. His major league debut was on April 2, 2011 against the New York Yankees.

“I’ve been using a Vinci Glove since high A Ball,” said Villarreal. “Since I’ve met Pete I’ve been using it regularly.”

Right-handed reliever Brayan Villarreal starred on the Tigers’ interleague trip this year. He appeared in three games and won the first two. In the third game, Villarreal guarded a narrow lead by blowing away the Cubs in the sixth and seventh innings.

Villarreal is rapidly becoming a fan favorite because he’s helping the Tigers win games. He has one of the best fastballs in MLB. Even though he is very happy that he is doing well, he is even happier that the team is doing better. His goal is to bring a World Series back to Detroit.

“Brayan is a great pitcher,” said Pete Vinci, owner of Vinci. “We wish him the best of luck with the Detroit Tigers this season.”

Villarreal wears a Vinci BV1150-M baseball glove. These gloves are handcrafted with Vinci’s exclusive Comfort-Feel genuine Kip leather, for the best feel and comfort in the industry.

Brayan Villarreal joins several other top athletes in both the American and National League who wear the Vinci brand.
