The concept of Hit Hero began at the tail end of COVID when the founder, who is an avid baseball player, suffered a painful thumb injury and needed to use a batting grip to keep playing without any discomfort.
Frustrated by the uncomfortable and clunky traditional grips on the market, they embarked on a journey to create something better - a batting grip that truly feels like an extension of your own hand.
After painstakingly crafting almost 50 different variations and gathering invaluable feedback from fellow players, Hit Hero V1 was born at the beginning of 2023.
Our patented 3D designed batting grip officially launched in March 2023, and quickly gained traction within regional leagues in Canada, and has since been embraced and tested by University Players, MLB affiliates and prospects alike - including the Savannah Bananas.
Every Hit Hero grip is meticulously handcrafted using 100% platinum silicone - a highly durable, skin-safe material that offers unmatched performance and longevity. We take pride in hand-mixing our vibrant colors to create a visually appealing and unique product that truly stands out from the competition.
What started as a small, boot-strapped passion project has steadily grown into an exciting venture, and we're thrilled to be at the forefront of this evolution in baseball. Join us on this journey and experience the game-changing difference that Hit Hero can make in your performance at the plate. Swing with confidence and make the switch!
