Passionate sports players and fans, founder E.C. Schindler and his son, Michael Schindler, were unsatisfied with the quality of balls available on the market; players deserved a better experience. By learning every detail about how a ball is made and through rigorous testing, they started producing sports balls that were like nothing the market had seen; balls of high quality and great value.
PASSION FOR A BETTER GAME
With innovation as its driving factor, Baden asked, “How do we make the game better for the player?”Baden’s first major innovation in sports was creating the women’s sized basketball, becoming the first athletic ball manufacturer to produce the women’s ball, adopted by the NCAA in 1984. Since this achievement, Baden has innovated countless technologies for basketball, volleyball, soccer, football, baseball, and softball, including Axe baseball and softball bats, a line of ergonomic bats, which are changing the face of the game.
That same question and approach is how Baden views the start of any new product. Baden doesn’t create “me too” products, but carefully analyzes each component of a ball or sports accessory, looking to optimize it for as close to perfect a user experience as possible for the player.
WHAT WE STAND FOR
