Akadema Re-signs Phillies Star Shane Victorino Akadema Inc and Shane Victorino team up again for the third straight year for a glove contract. Since first wearing the Akadema outfield model glove, Victorino has won two straight Gold Glove Awards
BigNews.Biz - Feb 16,2010 - Akadema has a wide array of MLB talent that ranges from All Star players like Manny Ramirez, Vicente Padilla to budding super stars like Cameron Maybin, Derek Holland and Vin Mazzaro. But none of the likes of a Gold Glove caliber like Shane Victorino. Since first wearing the Akadema glove (model AMR34) Victorino and Akadema have teamed up for two straight Gold Glove Awards in center field. It was a first for both parties, Akadema had never had a player win a Gold Glove and Victorino had never won a Gold Glove prior to using Akadema. " We certainly don't take credit for Shane's hard work and tireless pursuit of fly balls but hope that our quality and workmanship lend a helping hand throughout the long season" says Kris Totten VP Sales Akadema "At all levels our products are used by the top players looking to improve their defense, Shane is no different".
