In 2006, former baseball player, Trent Kitsch was on a fishing expedition and after spending hours in a cold, clammy ocean suit he knew there had to be a better way to protect his package from chafing. He imagined a catcher’s mitt hammock design and turned it upside down in his mind. After the fishing trip, and with the hammock idea still percolating, he worked with a seamstress and designer to create a paneled fabric hammock that separated his boys from his legs. Fourteen prototypes later, the BallPark Pouch and SAXX Underwear were ready for action.
