Mattingly Sports launched its first line of fielding gloves, the 9X SERIES. The new series of gloves represent a key addition to the company's product line which already includes the ground breaking and patented V-Grip Handle line of baseball and softball bats.

The inspiration for the 9X SERIES of fielding gloves came from “Donnie Baseball” himself. In addition to being the 1985 A.L. MVP and 1984 A.L. Batting Champion, Don Mattingly won fielding awards 9 times throughout his illustrious career with the N. Y. Yankees. The series of gloves will introduce Don's fielding prowess to the next generation of all-stars and are loaded with special features including durable steer hide leather construction, bruise guard protection and comfort finger lining.

“Today is a very exciting day in our young company's history. We are thrilled to be launching our first fielding glove line and believe it's a natural complement to our enormously popular line of patented V-Grip Handle bats.” said Skip Shaw, CEO – Mattingly Sports. “This is the first of many steps for our organization as we continue executing our plan to be the industry's leading provider of baseball and softball equipment.”

The new baseball gloves are available in youth sizes and will initially be sold on the company's website Later this year the 9X Series fielding gloves will be available at major sporting goods retailers.
