August 27, 2009

Clete Thomas, talented young outfielder for the Detroit Tigers, was in town this week for a series witht he Angels. When he foung out that the SKB factory and corporate facilities were a mile from the stadium, it wasn an opportunity to indulge his other sports passion - fishing.

Clete is certainly no stranger to fanaclubs and we were pleased to learn thaat he was a big fan of the SKB fishing product line. Clete seemed to really enjoy the opportunity to see first hand the advanced molding and finishing systems involved in producint these rugged cases.

"SKB continues to hit home runs with their high quality transport cases aimed at serious anglers. I've always thought that these productsts must have been designed by a knowledgeable, experienced sport fishing expert. When I met Dave Sanderson president of SKB, and heard the "fish stories", I knew my hunch was absolutely right. These products just flat out do the job with every designed-in necessity and convenience that the serious fisherman appreciate. Now back to the ballpark for some home runs of my own".
