4Licensing Corporation Introduces isoBLOX® in a Protective Cap for Pitchers
NEW YORK--(OTC Link: FOUR) - 4Licensing Corporation (“4LC”) and Pinwrest Development Group, LLC have received approval from Major League Baseball (“MLB”) for the on-field use of a new Protective Cap insert for MLB pitchers, which features the isoBLOX® patented impact protection technology. 4Licensing Corporation has a majority ownership interest in Pinwrest.
Development and testing of the Protective Cap insert began in May of 2013. The Protective Cap insert, approved for use this Spring, is a product of significant work by 4LC and Pinwrest. All parties involved in the development and approval process were distinctly aware of the importance of finding a protective cap to protect MLB pitchers from line drives hit back to the mound.
The Protective Cap, which will be available to players on a voluntary basis, is specifically designed to provide protection to the front, front boss, and side areas of the head. 4LC/Pinwrest will proudly custom-fit those players who choose to wear the Protective Cap during MLB Spring Training beginning in February and the 2014 regular season.
“Introduction of the Protective Cap represents a very significant step in the protection of major league pitchers. Our isoBLOX® technology, combined with a foam substrate, is molded into a lightweight, flexible, impact resistant head form that provides significant impact protection and can be inserted into a regular baseball cap worn by MLB Players,” said Bruce Foster, Chief Executive Officer of 4Licensing Corporation. “The Company is in the process of developing a number of other impact protection products utilizing isoBLOX®. These products are being designed for use by athletes of all ages, in a variety of sports and activities,” added Foster.
