After an Illinois high school pitcher recently threw 167 pitches in a game there is a movement to institute a limit on the number of pitches a high-schooler can throw in a game. Other states do require a pitch count, but most simply work on an innings limit. Here's another thing we believe should be mandated: Every high school dugout should have ice ready in the event of an injury or, for when a pitcher who has thrown many pitches comes out of the game. Imagine a kid throws 90-100, comes out in the 5th inning and sits on the bench for the remainder of the game, maybe as long as an hour, then does field work after, and then finally gets home and puts ice on his arm. We understand that it might not be convenient or possible to lug a cooler full of ice and plastic wrap out to every field. But fortunately, there is something much easier and much better. Our Pro Ice Team Kit is designed for exactly this need. With no need for water, plastic, coolers, etc. a coach with one of these will always have ice available in the dugout. Spread the word about our Pro Ice product!

Ice packs with no ice?
One of our favorite product offerings is our Pro Ice. We know that there are high schools everwhere that don't bring any ice to the field for games. So that means a pitcher might throw 100 pitches and get taken out in the fifth inning, then have to sit, with no ice on his arm, for an hour while the game completes, then help clean up the field, which means he had no ice on his arm for two hours after he was done throwing. This is unacceptable! Every high school baseball team should have the Pro Ice Team Safety Kit in their dugout. One of the assistant coaches merely needs to put it in the freezer the morning of the game and they'll have all the ice they need for pitchers, or in the case any of injuries.
