One of the lesser known companies that provide high quality baseball and softball equipment is Vinci. Vinci was founded in 1997 after Pete Vinci promised his father Benjamin that his name would one day be in the big leagues. Benjamin had been diagnosed and been dealing with Lou Gehrig's Disease when that promise was made. On each glove, the signature of Benjamin can be seen as a tribute to the man who was the inspiration for the company. The company is all about family as the model number of each glove released has a meaning and contains the initials of a family member or friend who have worked with the Vinci family.
Pete Vinci inspects each glove before they are sent out to be sold to ensure they are up to the standards his company has set up of honesty, quality and integrity. The company offers fielding gloves for use in baseball and softball leagues and will even customize a glove to your liking. The company has several Major League Baseball players using their gloves including Joakim Soria and Eury de la Rosa.
The company doesn't only produce fielding gloves as they also produce other apparel for use in baseball including sports sunglasses. These glasses come with different colored frames and there are models for men and women. The company also offers t-shirts, hats and other apparel that you can wear on the field in a game or during practice. If you need softball or baseball pants, Vinci also provides those with solid colors as well as pinstripes.
Vinci is headquartered in Richmond, Virginia and since its inception, have taken part in the design and production of 40 gloves for use by baseball and softball players. The gloves are made with U.S. steerhide and kip leathers, which are some of the best materials available to glove manufacturers.
