The TJ1952-L is dedicated to the memory of Timothy Jones, a hard working truck driver, husband, father and hero! Tim battled cancer for 21 months after being diagnosed with two good months. During Tim’s battle, Mark Jones, his son, started purchasing Vinci products. Pete Vinci, president of Vinci became Mark’s mentor as Pete had helped his father, Benjamin Vinci (whose signature is in every Vinci glove) battle with ALS/Lou Gehrig’s disease. Because of this Mark had become more involved in the Vinci company. While Tim was still with us, Pete had started working on a softball specific glove and needed some input. He asked the opinion of Tim. Pete’s blueprint with Tim’s input became the TJ1952-L, a 13.5 inch H-web built like a Mack truck!
Unfortunately, Tim never saw the official release of the TJ1952-L as we lost Tim to his battle with cancer on March 22,2010. However, his name will be remembered by many as the TJ1952-L model is named after him.
