ALL ABOUT THE INVENTION AND HISTORY OF THE NUTTYBUDDY
First and foremost, we love protecting the boys. To better do that, the NuttyBuddy had to be invented. We also love Mark Littell, the creator of NuttyBuddy. So, to share our love with you, here is a little bit about our history, and how Mark came about making the cup that protects the boys in comfort.
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. It was here that Mark first heart the protective cup called a "nutty" - he felt right at home.
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. Its 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."
On behalf of everyone on the NuttyBuddy team who has personally done the NuttyBuddy challenge, and anyone else who has had a NuttyBuddy take one for the boys, we say “Thanks’ Mark, we love you!” And, don’t forget this February that NuttyBuddy loves all you Nutts who let us protect your boys.
