USSSA is looking forward to working with PyroFlite and helping all of our players play the best game they can reguardless of the playing temperature
Medina, ND (PRWEB) October 13, 2009
PyroFlite, a North Dakota based producer of microwavable baseball bat warmers and other sports warming products, is proud to announce that they have received official endorsement of the United States Specialty Sports Association.
"USSSA is looking forward to working with PyroFlite and helping all of our players play the best game they can reguardless of the playing temperature," said USSSA Executive Director and CEO Don DeDonatis. "After looking at several products we concluded PyroFlite's Microwaveable Bat Warmer is the easiest way to keep a bat warm. It is easy to use, it's extremely affordable and provides the player an excellent method to keep their bats safe and sound."
The endorsement is especially timely as fall ball season has just started - and temperatures are starting to drop in most parts of the country, preventing many players from swinging like professionals.
That's why Brian Knetter invented the microwavable Bat Warmer. PyroFlite™ is the pioneer and leader in bat-warming technology.
The Microwavable PyroFlite™ Bat Warmer was invented a decade ago by Knetter, who had lost countless bats to dents, dings and breaks while playing in North Dakota's cold ball season. Knetter not only saw a need to keep his high-end bats safe, but also knew it was equally important to ensure a bat worked its best.
With the Microwavable PyroFlite™ Bat Warmer, baseball and softball players can keep their summer hitting stroke during the winter months, gain greater hitting consistency and maintain the health of their bats by preventing both cracking and denting.
Knetter's easy-to-use system safely warms bats even on coldest days, and is equally helpful to those playing on baseball and softball fields from California to Florida -- and all points in between.
The Microwavable PyroFlite™ Bat Warmer also helps eliminate pain. On cold days, when a bat hits the ball, it causes severe stinging or even bone bruises, which can easily last up to six weeks and ruin a season. For a high school athlete, that could cost them a college scholarship or more.
The Microwavable PyroFlite™ Bat Warmer warms aluminum, composite, or wood bats and eliminates the sting and vibrations, thus allowing players to swing for the fence with confidence.
"The first night I took it out, players couldn't believe what they saw and felt -- a hot bat in sub 60-degree weather," said Mark Anderton, New Zealand national batting champ and catcher/pitcher for Eddie Feigner's The King and His Court four-man Fastpitch Team. "And the feeling the batter got was not one of a 'dull jarring effect' but more like what they expect from an expensive bat -- Hot with some pop."
Longer bat life is another benefit.
When temperatures drop, an unheated bat can take a beating and isn't likely to last very long. Because of this, bat companies suggest on the bats themselves not to use them in temperatures less than 65 degrees. Dents, cracks and even dangerous breaks can occur in bats that aren't warmed to a bat manufacturer's recommended temperature for optimum performance. When a bat cracks or breaks, it has to be replaced, at a cost of hundreds of dollars each time.
The Microwavable PyroFlite™ Bat Warmer has been approved and endorsed by several organizations, most notably the United States Specialty Sports Association (USSSA) and National Softball Association (NSA). To date, there are more than 20,000 satisfied customers.
