Never would I have thought that VukGripz would be at the Men's College World Series. It was always a dream to just go watch some games and enjoy some "Fro-Yo" (Frozen Yogurt)! Take a family trip or even if it was just Dad and I. We made a large enough of an impact to catch the eye of Omaha Baseball Village's Director, Jenny Peters and Fox 42 Omaha's Bill Steckis!
There was a scary incident in the first game that involved a player from Louisville accidentally having his bat slip out of his hands during an at-bat. Ms. Peters (owner of Omaha Baseball Village) suggested that Bill Steckis checkout a small company from Ohio! This company was manning a tent, claiming that its products could have helped prevent that incident! Not only did Bill stop by, but he did a news story! This story would air for June 20th's prime time 9pm News Coverage! So, Bill put VukGripz bat grips and batting gloves through the test. He recommended to have one of the young visitors at the tent, Chase, experience VukGripz technology! The science in its bat grips and batting gloves of not slipping in wet, cold, and moist conditions would prove to be a game changer!
We proceeded to pour water on a wood bat that had its grip on it and on the palms of the VukGripz batting gloves! Chase would be wearing the gloves and using the bat tape for the test. Bill, of Fox 42 Omaha, ready with camera, navigated Chase through a series of questions and demonstrations so that he could film the results! Keep in mind, this did not happen in a caged area. If the bat would have slipped, it could have gone in any direction. So, not phased by the challenge and circumstances, RJ Vukovich (owner of VukGripz) had faith and confidence in his award-winning products! The demonstration went great and Bill got the film he needed to make this a story! He was even impressed on how grippy this bat grip and batting gloves system felt!
He even signed off wearing VukGripz batting gloves and holding a bat with a VukGripz bat grip! And, with that personal experience, he geared his story towards safety by using another clip! Also, this clip had Former NFL Player and current Minor League Player, Tim Tebow, who accidentally had a bat slip out his hands and go into the stands while swinging during a Minor League game.
So, to sum up this awesome experience: VukGripz does produce the top all-weather products on the market! Our products can be used in many other sports like hockey and lacrosse!
