Who's behind 9Positions?

Hi, I’m Andre. I’m the face behind the name.

On a hot day in 2002, while playing semi-pro baseball for the Panthers, my eyes were opened. I realized most players were playing baseball with really bad equipment.

It wasn’t just my team.

My teammates, players on other teams, up-and-comers were all using poorly made gear. As you might’ve guessed, this hurt our game a little bit. As I looked closer I noticed more and more. This bad equipment epidemic created lots of little problems for players.

They were bogged down.

I found specialty manufacturers, those with high quality equipment, and I started reselling them. I sold them to my teammates and other players. The results were fantastic. They were excited.

But it wasn’t enough.

So, I started my research. I put together a group of top tier suppliers. I used the highest quality wood to create a line of high quality wood bats, the kind of bats you couldn’t buy from your local sporting goods store.

It was the start of 9Positions.

Since then my goal has been simple. Make baseball players 25% better.

  • Better than last season
  • Better than their teammates
  • Better than their personal best
  • Better than they thought they ever could be

We’ve done it for other players and we can do it for you. Remember my motto?

Amazing performance begins with amazing gear.

What if you just want to play for fun? What if you’re not looking to be better than anyone else? Maybe you just want to be better for you, to get in amazing shape, beat your personal best, or just have fun?

We can help you do that too.

Your baseball gear is ruining your game.

Have you ever struggled to catch the ball and throw it to base?
Does the ball bounce or bobble when it hits your glove?

It’s not you, it’s your gear.

Maybe it’s a challenge to hit the ball where you want it.

Your bat doesn’t move the way you want it to, the ball never seems to go where you tell it to. You see the pitch, you know you should be connecting, your technique is good – but you’re still not getting the hit.

Then, when you get a hit, it’s a foul ball or pop fly – an easy out.

Any of that sound remotely familiar?

It’s not you, it’s your gear.

When it comes to amazing performance, baseball players make one major mistake.

They blame themselves for everything that goes wrong on the field.

If they’re not hitting the ball or fielding the way they want, when they want, they assume they’re doing something wrong. And you know what? They may be right.

But, they’re making a huge mistake

Amazing performance begins with amazing gear. Players perform best when their equipment is made for their body type and playing style.

If you’re an ectomorph, you may need a thin handle, long barreled bat.

What if you’re an endomorph? Well you need a large barreled (2.5″ – 2.625″) bat with a thicker handle.

What about mesomorphs? Haven’t forgotten them, they need a medium handled bat with a standard barrel (2 1/2″).

The wrong gear primes players for failure

Get a bat that’s too heavy for your body type/style and you’ll find yourself overcompensating – using more muscle and elbow grease – to get the hit. Now all of a sudden, it takes five seconds longer for you to get to first base – right before you’re tagged out.

The wrong equipment builds bad habits into your game.

It makes you slower, teaches you to move the wrong way, to use the wrong muscle groups – all to get subpar results.

So that means…

Baseball players all over the country are failing because they’re using the wrong equipment?

That’s right.
