Congratulations Carlos Torres! We’ll be watching!
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.
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.
