What changes will happen during the 2013 Major League Baseball off season?

Friday, November 22nd, 2013

In 2012 the Boston Red Sox had the worst record in the American League Eastern Division! In 2013 beginning in spring training, the term “Fear the Beard” was introduced for the Red Sox as a sign of unity and togetherness. The term spread far beyond the ballpark, and became a symbol for all those who are part of the Red Sox Nation. As a result of this unity, the Boston Red Sox won the American League East in 2013. Their team spirit and sense of unity carried them all the way to the World Series and ultimately had them claim the top prize as World Series Champions.

After the Boston Red Sox won the World Series, one of the biggest question people are asking, is what moves will my team make during the off season? Big Papi for sure will remain with the Red Sox, but there are still lingering questions for other players. Considering the World Series victory for the Boston Red Sox, our questions are what other changes will come for other players in Major League Baseball?

Robinson Cano, currently a New York Yankee is a “free agent” second baseman. Who will he sign with during this off season? Rumors are Cano and his agent Jay-Z are looking for a contract in the area of 300 Million dollars over ten years. Cano has played for the New York Yankees the last nine seasons. Cano plays stellar defense at second base, while batting .309 with 204 home runs. These are all great numbers for a position that’s mostly known for defense. So, what will he do?

The latest rumor has the New York Mets courting Robbie for a ten year contract. Some in the game claim Cano has one of the best swings in baseball. Will he command $300 million from any team, or will he be back with the New York Yankees? Can the Yankees afford to lose Cano’s defense and offensive numbers?

Only time will tell!

Questions with Wayne Vinci Product Specialist

Friday, April 12th, 2013

We spoke with our product specialist Wayne Wright, asking him some common questions we get in the order department. Here are the questions along with Wayne’s answers.

How long does it take to get a custom glove made?

WAYNE: Because of our quality control it takes 4 to 6 weeks to build your custom glove. Once the order is placed. 1.The leather is cut. 2. Name embroidered on the flat leather. 3. Leather and padding is sewn together. 4. Web and lace is added. 5.The glove is then inspected and shipped directly to you.

What is the difference between the glove I can purchase and the gloves the Professional Players use?

WAYNE: Nothing… We use the same leather, padding, and lace that we use for the Pros.

If I want to order a glove and have expedited shipping what do I do?

WAYNE: Our gloves go out with 3 major shipping companies now. USPS, UPS, & FEDEX. They all have ways to expedite shipping for an additional charge. You can call us at 888-529-6864, email me at or simply put a note in the comment section of check out.

There is no store in my area. How do I purchase a VINCI glove without worrying about if I will like the glove or not?

WAYNE: We guarantee you will like our products. If you get a product from us and you are not completely satisfied, you may return it within 15 days in NEW condition, not conditioned or broken-in in any way. We will replace the product with another of equal value or issue a full refund.

What do I do if a glove I want shows out of stock on your website?

WAYNE: Call or email me and I may be able to help you with a suitable replacement or let you know when that glove will be available. We are constantly making more gloves.  Our production line is busy especially this time of year.

How do you feel about the new Optimus gloves?

WAYNE: I love them!!! The leather is the best quality leather I have ever seen!!! I only wish these gloves were around when I played ball… Maybe my grand kids will get to use them!
