The St. Louis Cardinals catcher was in a whole lot of pain during a recent game when he took a 102-MPH foul tipped fastball right off his nuts. It was so bad that he had to have surgery and will be sidelined for the next month to recover. Enter Jeremiah Raber and his product “Armored Nutshellz,” which are bulletproof cups for high performing athletes, law enforcement, and military. Via Fox 2 Now: “Raber said the Cardinals reached out to him Sunday to buy three sets of Nutshellz after Yadier Molina was struck in the groin by a 102-mph fastball – that has him out for a month. The Cardinals heard about Nutshellz from the Baltimore Orioles which supplied them to all of their catchers in major, minor and AAA to prevent serious injuries. The catchers with the Cleveland Indians wear them too after past injuries had them looking for better protection. The players that are having these injuries realize now that they need something a little bit more than the companies that are trying to sell them,” said Jeremiah Raber, CEO of Armored Nutshellz.” – TO
