It's a Nutty World

Why so many injuries to your junk?

Why so many injuries to your junk?

Spread the word... A lot of athletes are still injuring their family jewels because they don't understand how and why you need a three-piece protective system for your protective cup.

Our Founder/Inventor, Mark Littell, a former MLB pitcher, created an entire system to give athletes the best protection, support and comfort. Our system includes three separate pieces (NuttyBuddy Athletic Cup, NuttyBuddy Jock and NuttyBuddy Lock Compression Shorts) and is designed from the ground up for maximum protection. The NB jock to be worn OVER the NB Lock compression shorts with the NB cup inserted in between is a system that has been proven to work again and again over the past 15+ years.

We invented this system with a NuttyBuddy because our cup is not flat, it is anatomically correct and is curved to fit snug to your body. (By the way, our cup is the only cup on the market that is anatomically correct allowing your junk to hang naturally). Our jock strap is used to hold the NB cup tight to your body and is worn on the outside of the shorts (our shorts hold your package up and in one place) in order to provide maximum comfort and protection. Just like the pros! You get the best of both worlds - luxury and protection.

We spent years trying to find the best solution and we firmly believe we still have the best design on the market. When you wear the NuttyBuddy system correctly, the cup will "float" with the movement of your body. It is way better than an inside pouch, which only gives the illusion that the cup is in the correct position. You want your cup snug to your body, and we found that pouches did not do that as they are designed to just hold the cup and not hold it tight. If it's not snug, it's useless. The Jock and shorts combination is how the professionals wear cups. We believe in this system so much we trademarked “Wear It Like A Pro®”.





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. 

The Lurking of the Zone

The Lurking of the Zone

The Zone is lurking about. Will you find the Zone?  It took me a while, but someone said, "Mix in a strike" ... and I found the Zone. But now it's even better, you can talk to the Zone. 

Believe this, the Zone can and does talk back at times. When my mind is going in all the right channels, the ball hits the Zone. But when I get a little frisky, sassy and rambunctious with my thoughts running wild, that ball can get real hot, real fast. If it comes back at you, better cover up. If you get hit by that fast-moving projectile, it's ugly. 

Yep, the Zone works in mysterious ways, responding to my thoughts. Though most of the time the only thing I was thinking was, "Are you shittin' me?" (a common baseball term).

Moral of the story is, "He who thinks long, thinks wrong."
