Miami, FL, May 30, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- An innovative new product designed to serve a vitally important function in baseball, the Strike Zone, has been developed by George Hubbard of Dolton, Illinois. The invention’s unique design provides baseball umpires with a highly dependable way of insuring accuracy when calling pitches at home plate.
The Strike Zone’s proprietary features allow its users to receive immediate feedback on pitch location as it pertains to home plate, thereby making it much easier to make correct calls. The product will play an important role in the significant reduction of disputes about whether a pitch should be called strike or ball, increasing the integrity of the game. Additionally, the Strike Zone is thoroughly comfortable and unobtrusive to wear during a game. Furthermore, the Strike Zone leverages modern technology to insure accuracy and provide clear and timely information to the wearer. Moreover, it will be competitively priced and made from durable materials, adding to its appeal.
The Strike Zone is also the subject of Patent Pending status within the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
Mr. Hubbard now seeks a third party licensee to manufacture, market, and distribute the product for him under a royalty agreement. Potential licensees in the sporting goods accessories industry are currently being targeted as candidates to eventually commercialize the Strike Zone on a worldwide basis.
In December 2014, Mr. Hubbard contracted Miami, Florida-based product management services leader Innovation Direct™ to represent the Strike Zone 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.
