About the Company
Pro47Products,llc was established in 2012 to allow today's baseball consumer an easier, more convenient way to help break-in, restore or preserve leather baseball gloves. Through its relationship with soon-to-be Major League Baseball Hall of Fame pitcher, Tom Glavine, the company developed an easy, no-mess application for the conditioning process utilizing Tom's insight.
The company offers several products that will revolve around a disposable, recyclable towelette that will incorporate proprietary ingredients. The single-use towelettes will be available in three different applications depending on your maintenance requirements.
The initial product line offers a no-mess glove conditioner for breaking-in, restoring or preserving your leather glove. Then, by year's end, the company will introduce two additional towelette products, an equipment cleaner and an eye-black remover. This one-step, recyclable, towelette application can benefit every level player from T-Ball to the Major's.
About Tom Glavine
From 1987-2002, Glavine amassed a lengthy, successful reign with the Atlanta Braves, including two Cy Young Awards (1991, 1998), five seasons of 20 or more wins (1991-1993, 1998, 2000) and four Silver Slugger Awards (1991, 1995, 1996, 1998). He was also named the World Series MVP after one-hitting the Cleveland Indians for eight innings in the decisive sixth game of the 1995 World Series.
In December 2002 Glavine became a free agent and signed with the New York Mets. After finishing the 2006 season with a 15-7 record and a 3.82 ERA, he pitched 16 consecutive scoreless innings in the playoffs, finishing with a 2-1 record and a 1.59 ERA.
On August 5, 2007, Glavine became just the 23rd pitcher in Major League Baseball to win his 300th career game, as the Mets defeated the Chicago Cubs 8-3 at Wrigley Field. He is the first pitcher ever to win his 300th game at Wrigley.
After five seasons with the Mets, Glavine became a free agent in November 2007 and returned to the Braves where Glavine ended his playing career announcing his retirement on February 11, 2010. Glavine is currently working within Braves management as the special assistant to team president John Schuerholz.
