Glove and Battie Caddie


Glove and Battie Caddie

The Glove and Battie Caddie is a carrier that mounts to the handlebars of a bicycle, and is designed to transport a bat, baseball glove, and baseball. This allows a bicycle rider to carry these objects safely without loss of control. Austin and his device have been featured in Boys’ Life, Cable in the Classroom, The Plain Dealer, NBC, CBS, and the Discovery Channel, to name a few. Austin has applied for a U.S. patent for the Glove and Battie Caddie.
