Joakim Soria, the top Mexican closer in MLB history, is the closer for the Kansas City Royals. He has worn a Vinci glove since 2010 with the Kansas City Royals. For the Royals he is wearing a Vinci Model JC3300 baseball glove. This glove is dedicated to his daughter, Angela.
“Vinci makes a great glove,” said Soria. “I bring all I can to each game, and I expect a lot from my equipment. My Vinci glove always serves me well.”
Soria made his Major League debut on April 4, 2007. In May of 2010, Soria got his 100th save against the Texas Rangers. He was picked for the 2010 All-Star Game, the second of his career. He finished the season with a 1.78 ERA and 43 saves in 46 opportunities. In 2011, Soria has accumulated 14 saves as of July 5th.
“We are thrilled to have Joakim wear a Vinci glove,” said Pete Vinci, owner of Vinci. “We have followed him throughout his career and consider him a personal friend of the family.”
