ABOUT US

Water bottles and cups thrown on the ground showing the need for dugout organizer ideas.

PURPOSE

It all began amidst the chaos of a cluttered dugout - water bottles strewn on the ground, getting muddy, and causing frustration for local baseball team coaches. For us, it was a simple design solution: create a cupholder to keep the sports drinks organized and off the ground. This sparked the creation of The Fence Buddy - an innovative solution aimed at decluttering dugouts and enhancing the game-day experience. Alongside functionality, we incorporated customizable name tags, adding a cool factor for the kids and ensuring everyone can easily identify their drink. 

FUNCTIONAL DESIGN

Our commitment to functional design stems from valuable feedback from coaches and athletes, shaping improvements tailored for coaching gear. These insights drove enhancements like stackability, durability, and customization. Our approach resonates with users who appreciate its portability, ease of use, and efficient game-day organization, reinforcing our commitment to customer satisfaction.
