September 8, 2017 - Sweet by Design

If your baseball or softball team is looking for that extra edge this season look no farther than TeamBattingGloves.com. They can custom-make gloves with your logo, colors, even to match your uniform jerseys. They are the added touch that will have other teams wondering what else you have up your compression sleeves.

Made with the finest quality leather these gloves are superior to almost any we've ever seen in a retail store. Yet when you order in bulk (minimum orders start at just a dozen), you'll get them for half the price or better than other pro style gloves. Oh, and did we mention, this includes full customization for your team? Many organzations use them as a fundraiser or spirit pack item.

Ask them to send you a digital mock-up so you can see how your gloves will look. Show them to your players and see if they don't start drooling. These are exactly the motiviational item you need to make the next season a hit. And isn't that what great batting gloves are for after all?

June 2, 2017- These Will Catch On

The folks at Upstart Sports know their gloves. Their Team Batting Gloves are top-of-the-line in quality and budget priced. School, leagues, travel teams and more are clamoring to get their custom gloves with their own embroidered logo in their baseball and softball team colors. 

But football season is coming up and there are thousands of schools and leagues that are planning for the new season. If you're one of them, make your plans to include the custom gloves from TeamFootballGloves.com. These gloves are unlike any on the market with their extremely durable, breathable stretch fabric in back and their silicone palm that can be emblazoned with a cross-finger logo.

They sent us some to try out and the silicone is just the perfect amount of tackiness to make those one-handed highlight grabs. The backs are so comfortable and form fitting that your players will feel like they are not wearing a glove at all. Most over gloves we've seen are cumbersome and don't have the same flexibility the gloves from Upstart provide. 

But coolest of all is the wide array of designs available. You can get your team logo embossed within a camo pattern or anything else you can imagine. Let your creativity run wild, like your players. Oh, and when the ball goes up in the air rest assured it's going to come down firmly tucked away in these gloves...and looking spectacular in the process.

February 20, 2017 - Get Shelter

If you want an inexpensive and portalbe shelter solution for your kids soccer, field hockey or lacrosse teams you need to check out the Club Shelter from Upstart Sports. It's an amazing product for the price and can be customized in your team's colors and logo. 

Because it is lightweight and compact it can easily be set up and broken down before and after games. It is designed to cover a "six-seater" bench and keep players out of the elements. This is a great investment for any club travel team. 

There are four “webbing loops” on each corner of the shelter where you can stake down or place weight bags to secure the shelter to the ground. It comes in a carrying bag with instructions and four 9” steel spikes. You can easily fit it in the trunk of the car along with the kids' soccer gear. It's also great for excursions to the beach or lake.

Even if the weather won't cooperate, your kids don't have to be drenched by the rain or baked in the sun while they wait for their chance to play. Pop up the Club Shelter and in no time at all they'll be cool and dry. The other team will wonder why your team is always fresh and energetic.

October 21, 2017 - Catching Cold

You're a high school baseball coach. You have a pitcher who has thrown close to 100 pitches in the fourth inning and it's time to take him out. He tips his cap to the appreciative crowd as he strides into the dugout, his day over. Now it's time for him to ice that shoulder and elbow to facilitate healing and prevent soreness and injury.

Except, wait. There's no ice. The field is so far away from the school no one thinks to bring a cooler full of ice to the diamond. Now, your pitcher must wait another few innings, maybe more if the game goes extras, and he has to stay around after the game to help rake the mound and do other field maintenance. By the time he gets home and ices his arm, (if he even does at all), its hours since he threw his first pitch.

But if you had the Pro Ice Shoulder/Elbow Cold Wrap in the dugout, he'd have the benefit of immediate icing, with no cooler, no water, no hassle.

Pro Ice is a proven, non-toxic pain reliver for acute injuries, It also is a great preventative for people who have overused their arms – like pitchers.

Simply place this reusable cold pack around the shoulder and elbow. The windowpane format will conform to the body and the compression straps will boost the benefits of the cold therapy unit. The single ice insert will maintain a consistent temperature for an hour. Coaches can keep it and other wraps in a convenient, freezer-friendly neoprene cooler and simply store it in their freezer at home or at the school, then grab it along on the way to the field before the game. The wrap stays cold, out of the way, and easy to access and wear.

Every coach, high school and college, baseball, basketball, volleyball, lacrosse, field hockey and nearly any others you can think of, needs Pro Ice. You'll use no water, no plastic wrap, you won't have to lug a cooler anywhere and, most importantly, you'll be sure to have ice available if there is an injury or any muscle stress. This is one cold, you'll want to catch.

June 3, 2016 - Glove at First Sight

If you read through our nine years of reviews you'll find two common themes that we embrace. First, we love training aids. Specifically, we love training aids that can be used solo. We love the idea of youth players in the garage, on the street, at the park or in the backyard working on their game on their own time with no coaches or parents present.

The second thing we love is when we find that magical mix of great quality but tremendous value. Usually this has been a case of an up-and-coming company that either doesn't know how good their product is or is willingly under-charging so as to try to gain market share. In either, since we're kind of tightwads here, top-of-the-line products at a bargain price make us very happy.

Well, we're very happy about this product and since you can see that it is not a training aid, you can guess which category it fits into. The new Upstart Sports Batting Gloves are a fantastic glove that players from Little League to the Pros will love, at a price that parents tired of overpaying for their kids baseball and softball gear will appreciate.

They sent us a few pairs to try out. One of my sons who plays in college got them in the mail the other day and described them as "sweet!" He was going to head down to the field the minute he put them on to go and take batting practice. I wonder if he drove with them on. And if you need more convincing, let me explain this kid: He asked for a photo of them first before he'd let me ship them because the way they look is very important to him. And if something doesn't feel just right, he won't wear it because his career is too important to him. So for him to give them a rousing endorsement means there's a better than 99% chance your player will (g)love them too. And the price? Just go to the site and prepare to be pleasantly surprised.

Upstart Sports plans to release more branded items soon. We can't wait to bring them to you. In the meantime, get their first offering before they wise up and realize they could sell them for twice the price.
