SHELTON, CT January 7, 2010 – Mattingly Sports, a leading baseball and softball equipment company founded by MLB legend Don Mattingly, announced today the launch of its new traditional round handle “Saber” bat line.

Featuring an MB7500 Alloy construction the “Saber” bats deliver an incredible balance of performance and value. An extended barrel with a massive sweet spot and Direct Power Transfer, a stiff handle technology which optimizes energy transfer to the ball, are two additional features and benefits of the new bats.

“Everyone at Mattingly Sports, including myself is very excited about the Saber launch. Now in addition to their V-Grip bat, players will have another great option to put in their bat bag,” said Don Mattingly, Founder – Mattingly Sports. “It’s a great line and I really think players of all ages will love the feel and performance of the new bats.”

“Our patented V-Grip handle bats have been and will continue to be the cornerstone of our bat business” said Skip Shaw, CEO – Mattingly Sports. “But providing our loyal customer base with additional, quality product options is one of our company’s top priorities. The Saber line now gives players who demand and trust the performance of Mattingly bats the option of owning a traditional round handle bat and a V-Grip bat.”

Tyler Bosetti's Mattingly V-Grip Story

My name is Tyler Bosetti, my friends call me T-Bo. I am 10 years old and live in Vacaville, Ca. Baseball is my favorite sport and I love playing it. I play little league as well as Travel Ball. Our Travel Ball team is the U11 Bulldog Baseball Club. Our team is very good and I mostly play shortstop and pitch. I am the lead-off hitter for the team and I love hitting with my Mattingly Beast Unleashed. The V-grip handle makes sure my knuckles are lined up on every swing. I love hitting with the Beast because it has great "POP" and I can drive the ball all over the field. I am also using the Mattingly Training bat, 28 inch 34 ounce. It helps me during batting practice because it helps me build strength. All of my team mates on the Bulldogs are now using the training bat during batting practice. They use it because it helps them get stronger and hit the ball a lot harder.

I enjoy playing baseball all the time and it is my dream to become a professional baseball player. I would recommend to anybody who is serious about playing baseball to give the V-Grip Mattingly Baseball bats a try, because if you do you will not use anything else.

See you at the ballfield!
