Innovation Direct™ to be at Forefront of Marketing Efforts for Mr. Catcher Invention

Miami, FL, September 12, 2012 --( An innovative and effective new product designed to entertain and hone children’s baseball skills, Mr. Catcher, has been developed by Micheal Glenn Jones of Decatur, Alabama. The invention's unique design allows its users to play a game of catch without the need for another person to be present.

Sports have long been considered one of the great antidotes to the potential dangers of a young idle mind. Baseball in particular is steeped in tradition as not only an immensely popular professional sport, but as one of the most beneficial physical activities for children as well. However, as romanticized as the idea of a father helping his son fine tune his baseball skills has been presented over time, the reality is that many children, due to time constraints or missing parental figures, often find themselves with no one to practice their favorite sport with.

In an attempt to address these problems, Mr. Catcher has been developed. Mr. Catcher will be easy and safe for children to operate and utilize. It will also be lightweight and durable, making it convenient to transport and set up outdoors. Mr. Catcher eliminates boredom and frustration for children wishing to practice baseball but lacking another person to do it with. Furthermore, Mr. Catcher will help hone a child’s baseball skills, thereby enhancing self-esteem.

A prototype of Mr. Catcher has also been developed by the inventor and utilized with success.

Mr. Jones now seeks a third party licensee to manufacture, market, and distribute the product for him under a royalty agreement. Potential licensees in the children’s sporting goods industry are currently being targeted as candidates to commercialize Mr. Catcher on a worldwide basis.

In May 2012, Mr. Jones contracted Miami, Florida-based product management services leader Innovation Direct™ to represent Mr. Catcher to potential licensees for a 2 year period. Innovation Direct™ obtains the maximum amount of exposure for the products that it represents through its unique and patented licensing methodology and its participation in multiple and diverse industry-leading trade shows each year.
