A Coaches Best Friend

Two brothers , Mike and Sam Welsh, have come up with an answer to the question as old as America's Pastime, "How do you clean a dirty baseball?" They have created an innovative product that answers this question and them some - it doesn't just clean one baseball, it cleans an entire bucket of baseballs at one time. Their product is called "The Oyster" since it makes "pearls" out of dirty baseballs. The idea behind this product is to give teams across America the capability to practice like the pros while saving cash in baseball expenses. Its a win-win.

Since both Mike and Sam grew up with baseball in their blood, they understand the power of practicing with clean, white baseballs. Mike and Sam both started playing ball in Southern California in the William S Hart Pony League and they both played at Hart High School. Mike played at Hart High all four years, tuned his game at College of the Canyons for a year, then headed to Nicholls State University in Thibodeaux, Louisiana to be a starting Division I pitcher. Sam played one year at Hart High, then finished up his last three years at Coppell High School near Dallas, Texas, where he was on the 1995 Texas State Championship 4A team. He headed to East Texas and played SS/3B for Tyler Junior College for two years.

Since the glory days of playing ball, Mike and Sam continue to play organized baseball in various leagues off and on, but are now committed to creating baseball cleaning solutions. Mike and Sam created their Texas-based company, Between the Lines LLC, in 2009 and have been working hard with NDH Design to perfect The Oyster's design. NDHdesign is a full service industrial design company located in Texas that specializes in product design and development. The Oyster will be hitting the market in the Fall of 2010 with the hope to change the way teams practice, ultimately enhancing the game. Not to mention, saving programs cash in baseball expenses - we all know baseballs aren't cheap!
