Vinci Welcomes Our First Professional Softball Player

Tuesday, November 25th, 2014

Vinci Co., LLC, is proud to welcome our first ever professional softball player to the company in Natalie Hernandez. From 2011-2014, Hernandez played collegiately for the University of Illinois-Chicago before turning professional in June and is currently a GA at Robert Morris in Chicago.

Vinci is a family-owned and operated sports equipment company dedicated to quality. A number of minor and major-league baseball players, and now our first professional softball player use Vinci equipment. Makers of baseball gloves, softball gloves, sunglasses, batting gloves and batpacks.

“Speaking with Natalie on the phone was the icing on the cake,” said Peter J Vinci, CEO of Vinci. Vinci added “I could hear it in her voice the energy, excitement and passion, these are things that we already share in common. We’re proud to have her as our first professional softball player”

During the 2014 season with UIC, Hernandez started in all but one game at shortstop, was the lead-off hitter all season and finished with a .413 average. Between February 23 and April 8, she went on a 13-game hitting streak. Hernandez’s final season with the Flames ended with many honors including; All-Horizon League First Team, NFCA All-Great Lakes Region Third Team and Horizon League Honor Roll. Hernandez was also named Batting Champion and to the All-Tournament Team at the Horizon League Championship in 2014 after posting a .563 average over four games with three home runs.

“Joining the Vinci team and players such as Joakim Soria of the Detroit Tigers, and Carlos Torres of the New York Mets in representing Vinci is a tremendous honor and one that I accept with a great level pride. I look forward to a working with Vinci to help grow the brand throughout the softball world,” said Hernandez.

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.
