Mizuno "Glove Love" Story on OC Register.com
Mizuno baseball gloves are once again in the headlines, this time on OC Register.com, the official website for the Orange County Register newspaper. The newspaper published a story that takes an in-depth look at the baseball equipment, in particular gloves, for four of the Mizuno Brand Ambassadors for the Los Angeles Angels, including their three catchers - Hank Conger, Jeff Mathis, and Bobby Wilson - as well as outfielder Peter Bourjos. Feature Writer Marcia C. Smith interviewed Mizuno USA's own George Andrea for the piece, which examines the relationship between these players, as well as retired Mizuno Brand Ambassadors Garret Anderson, Tim Salmon, and Gary DiSarcina, and their Mizuno ball gloves.
The OC Register talks about the "patient and soft-spoken" Andrea, and how he services the equipment needs of the Angels, Dodgers, Padres, and Diamondbacks throughout the season. There are excellent quotes from the players as well as Andrea on the preferences, superstitions, and overall "Glove Love" that they have with their equipment. Additionally, the site has a slideshow of images that includes pictures of our Brand Ambassadors and their equipment, Mizuno's Chief Craftsman Nori Itoh, and the various tools that are used to service the gloves.
