DeMarini, makers of baseball, fastpitch and slowpitch bats, is introducing a full line of men’s, women’s and youth apparel for baseball and softball players. The new line of DeMarini Apparel will be available at select online retailers beginning
Nov. 26. Apparel will be launched nationally Jan. 1, 2013.

“At DeMarini, we’re always thinking about ways to improve player performance,” said Jim Hackett, general manager of DeMarini Baseball/Softball. “We know that athletic apparel is a dime a dozen these days. Our R&D guys spend 10 hours a day in the cage, and we know baseball and softball better than anyone and we know the demands on a player’s body are unique.”

DeMarini Apparel is built for the diamond and engineered in the cage. It is designed for a player whose involvement in the game extends beyond the field. “For us, baseball and softball is our life and for many of our players, they feel similarly. This is for them,” added Hackett. DeMarini will offer Game Day, Training Day and Post Game gear specifically designed to meet the unique needs of male and female ball players.

The highlight of the Game Day apparel offering is the DeMarini Swing Shirt – an under uniform base layer that offers a relief and compression design. The Swing Shirt was created specifically to work with a player’s swing offering compression in the forearms, chest, and back. The Game Day line is meant to be worn under a uniform to maximize player comfort, mobility and performance.

For Training Day, one of the highlights is the Yard-Work Shorts. Designed specifically for the latter part of two-a-days, the lightweight stretch woven fabric provides comfort and durability while the ballplayer-centric pockets and fit make these shorts comfortable.

For Post Game, DeMarini’s line also features a set of hoodies, t-shirts, hats, jackets and shorts.
