UNEQUAL Technologies Hits a Grand Slam at MLB Winter Meetings

UNEQUAL's Patented Kevlar-Based EXO Skeleton Padding Designed to Protect Baseball Players From the Majors to Little League

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - Dec 7, 2011) - UNEQUAL Technologies®, the premier provider of head and body armor for soldiers and athletes, is showcasing its patented EXO Skeleton protective padding at the 2011 Baseball Winter Meetings in Dallas this week. The company will unveil and demonstrate the power of its baseball protective padding to more than 3,000 coaches and trainers. Made with military grade technology and fused with DuPont™ Kevlar® that is five times stronger than steel and considered the world's best shock suppression material, the UNEQUAL EXO Skeleton padding is a must-have for any baseball player from the Majors to Little League. UNEQUAL will be displaying its product line at booth #1618.

UNEQUAL's EXO Skeleton® Head and Body Armor line of supplemental full-body, protective performance padding is designed to ensure baseball players can take game-ending hits head on. No matter the levels or age, EXO Skeleton provides unparalleled protective padding that put athletes on the offensive. The supplemental padding can be used in baseball helmets to provide against rogue pitches, as well as used in chest and body pads to protect catchers and umpires behind the plate.

"Baseball isn't typically thought of as an aggressive, high impact sport, but getting hit in the head with a 90 mph fastball can be career ending if the head isn't adequately protected," states Rob Vito, founder and CEO of UNEQUAL. "Our EXO Skeleton padding adds a supplemental layer of protection between the ball and the player. The ballistic grade Kevlar® gives players the added protection that typical helmets just can't offer. As a result, we're hitting a grand slam at this show."

Most recently, UNEQUAL EXO Skeleton CRT padding was used to protect the Pittsburgh Steelers, most notably: James Harrison, Hines Ward, Charlie Batch, Ike Taylor and Troy Polamalu.

The Baseball Winter Meetings supplies owners and executives a setting to come together, review the 2011 season, and plan for 2012. Over the course of the four-day convention, representatives from all 30 Major League Baseball organizations and more than 160 Minor League Baseball™ teams are joined by various league offices, companies associated with baseball and guests from international baseball-playing countries to celebrate and honor the achievements of the 2011 season. The Baseball Trade Show™ will feature approximately 300 exhibitors, displaying a wide variety of products and services that teams can test, discuss and purchase on the spot.
