January 26, 2018 - What a Slimeball!

You won't be saying that pejoratively after you try out the new fun and games from Diggin' Active. We love their cool products for kids and this one is no exception. The gooey, slimy balls don't cause a mess in the house, don't stick to walls or require clean-up, but they do stick to the targets and make a great dodgeball game. Your kids and their friends will play for hours hurling green gobs of slime-filled goodness at each other. 

Think that might get boring after a while? Then, accessorize! Because you can also pick up a Slimeball Bow, Slimeball Darts, Slimeball Slinger, Splat Set, Gobzooka and even a Slimeball Practice Set to be sure you're Slimball ready any time. 

Fun is the name of the game when kids and slime get together. Diggin' Active will give you nearly endless ways to make it happen.

January 19, 2018 - Feed Me!

One of the hardest things for a player who wants to hit, is to find a partner to throw to him. My boys are fortunate that I am always (almost always) willing to pitch to them and we have a local high school cage we can use whenever we want. But what about the vast majority of others not so lucky? 

You might say, "get them a pitching machine" and we've already written several times that JUGS makes the best. But you still need that other person to feed balls into the machine. So while that expands the spectrum of who can help (i.e. they don't have to be another player), it still entails getting someone else to come along. 

Or does it? Because JUGS thought of that too. Their 18-ball feeder (14-ball feeder for softball) means you can go take BP and no one else even needs to know about it. The feeder is simple to operate, lightweight and will feed you a ball every six seconds. 

But don't you still need someone there to load the feeder and start it? Not with JUGS' In-Line On/Off Feeder Remote which allows you to start and stop it with a step of a pedal. Now you truly are autonomous. 

JUGS makes products that get players better, plain and simple. The more innovation they bring, the fewer excuses there are for the rest of us.

December 1, 2017 - Brain Cramp

We've all heard of electrolytes and most of us vaguely know that they are meant to replace things the body loses during strenuous excercise. But instead of just trusting the latest product you've seen on television to take care of you, maybe you'd rather rely on real science. 

The Pickle Juice Company has a funny name but a serious solution to the cramping athletes often endure when active. Since we didn't do the research, we'll tell you the story in their words:

The Pckle Juice Company is a leading sports beverage company that has transformed the way muscle cramping is treated by creating the first natural, purpose-built isotonic sports beverage on the market, which features revolutionary neural inhibitor qualities in the formula. The beverage is called Pickle Juice® which is original and made with all natural ingredients. While it is widely believed that muscle cramps result from an electrolyte imbalance, the phenomenon is proven to be neurological, not physical. TPJC’s 100% natural formula engages the same neurological receptors in the brain that causes cramps, prevents those neurons from firing and combats muscle cramps faster than anything else currently available. This scientific and multi-factor approach prevents muscle cramps in as fast as 60 seconds, quicker than anything else on the market today.

Translation? It works better than other sports drinks. Any then why not just drink the leftover liquid from your Vlasic Pickle jar? Because this  differs significantly from pickle brine (the stuff in the jar) in that it’s designed specifically to combat muscle cramps at the neurological source and contains added electrolytes and vitamins. Each product formula contains dual filtered water, vinegar, salt, natural dill flavor, potassium, zinc, vitamin C, vitamin E – without any sugar, gluten, caffeine, or artificial color or flavor.

They sent us some to try and while it doesn't taste like those sugary sports drinks you think of, what good to you think all that sugar does? That's right, none...for you anyway. But it's great for the companies that use it to hook consumers on their sugary beverage. My son had a tight hamstring and drank a bottle of Pickle Juice before going to take batting practice. By the time he got to the cage the leg felt 100%.

There's a reason many MLB, NBA and other pro teams use the stuff. It works. Even if you're not a fan of pickles, we know you like muscle cramps even less.
