It's a Nutty World



THE NATURAL or TWO BALLS AND A STRIKE

THE NATURAL or TWO BALLS AND A STRIKE

I threw BP (batting practice) naked once. No bull. It was Stockton, CA and on this particular day, I'm tellin' ya, it was smokin'. After throwing 50 balls in the first round, I said to myself, "I gotta have some relief." That turf was hot so I just started sheddin' the clothes off my back.

Off comes the T-Shirt, next are the shorts and then I just said, "Hell with it, jock's gotta go too."  Then, of course, to make it a "Full Monty" I flipped off the shoes. 

Now there were all kinda balls flyin' around. When I yelled out for a pickup nobody wanted to pick up the balls behind the L-Screen. The guys hittin' we're always talkin' shit about gettin' naked in the clubhouse ... just a bunch of wusses.

Meet Mark Littell Inventor of NuttyBuddy

Meet Mark Littell Inventor of NuttyBuddy

Mark Littell, professional baseball player and coach for more than 30 years, inventor of the NuttyBuddy™, patented, premier athletic protective cup.

Mark was born and raised in Gideon, Missouri, a small town of 800 known for soybeans, water moccasins and the New Madrid earthquake fault. In 1971, fresh out of high school, he signed with the Kansas City Royals playing with them until he was traded to the St. Louis Cardinals in 1982, the year he received his World Series ring. Mark began coaching in 1988, as the Coach In Residence for Australia's Bi-Centennial. Then he moved to the San Diego Padres in 1989. He was with the Milwaukee Brewer's from 1992 to 1996, the Kansas City Royals from 1997 to 1998 and the Los Angeles Dodgers for the 1999 season. Mark joined the Milwaukee Brewer's in 2000 and continues to coach the game he loves so much.

As a coach, Mark’s mission was to help players hone their skills and play their best. His entrepreneurial side took over when he learned that nearly 50% of his athletes refused to wear athletic cups because they felt the cups were uncomfortable or restrictive. Starting with a blank sheet of paper, he worked with Industrial Designer, Dosun Shin, to invent The NuttyBuddy™ patented, premier athletic protective cup.

The NuttyBuddy protective athletic cup is unlike any other. It’s award- winning, patented design is anatomically shaped to conform to the male body, providing never-seen-before- levels of comfort and protection.

As Mark Littell says, “It’s all about… protecting the boys.”

Look, we understand that you don't expect to hear fashion advice from the NUTTSletter. Tough cookies, because this advice is fashionably important.

Top 3 Reasons to Ditch the Tighty-Whities:

  1. White briefs and other light-colored underpants show stains. All stains! While you could bleach them, who has the time or wants all that extra work, for underpants? That's not even mentioning how bleach can turn your underpants into cheese-cloth. (Save the sheer underpants for a special occasion please).
  2. Black goes with everything. So, you can be stylish in the locker room, stylish in the porta-john, or even stylish in the house while you wait for that next load of laundry to finish.
  3. Black works with any season. Winter? Yup, they will be able to see your frostbitten butt out in the snow if you chose to forgo common sense and run out in your white shorts. Spring? Yessir, have some spring in your step as you know that you are not accruing yellowing sweat stains. Summer? Double down, you have black underpants that can be worn under the shortest shorts and show practically no stains, you are cleared for awesome. Fall? You might fall, everyone does. But even as the cold sneaks back in, you have underpants that aren't brown and yellow from the rest of the year or paper thin from too much bleaching.

Ok – One More! We can't help ourselves. Have we mentioned the stains yet? We have, but for real, light-colored underwear shows every stain you can think of! Here is a brief list of possible stains light colored underpants show like bad modern-art in an underpants- museum: grass, red-wine, poop-streaks, blood, sweat, chocolate, dirt, etc. Would you rather try to make someone believe that is really a ‘dirt’ stain, or just buy black underpants? Sometimes you have to pinch one off fast, and maybe good wiping isn’t in the works. You can still save yourself from traumatizing everyone else by not wearing light colored briefs that advertise that crappy situation.
