Vinci, manufacturer of high-quality baseball and softball equipment since 1997, was founded on a promise that, “One day your name will be in the Big Leagues.” Pete Vinci, founder and President of Vinci, made this promise to his father, our Hero Benjamin Vinci. You will see our Hero’s signature in every glove we manufacture as a tribute to a man that continues to touch many to this day.
Pete, seeing his father battle Lou Gehrig’s Disease for years would like to help aid others still living with this disease. In recognition of Benjamin Vinci who passed away from Lou Gehrig’s Disease, we at Vinci will donate a percentage of all product sales to the ALS Association during the month of July.
This being the 70th year anniversary of Lou Gehrig’s speech at Yankee Stadium July 4th, 1939. Some say it was one of the top ten speeches ever given.
On the 4th of July Major League Baseball® and Minor League BaseballTM are helping to support four ALS organizations, including ALS Association of Greater New York , to raise awareness of ALS.
