Stocks in this article: JAH





ST. LOUIS, April 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Rawlings Sporting Goods Company, Inc., a subsidiary of Jarden Corporation (NYSE: JAH) and its new Rawlings S100® Pro Comp™ batting helmet were announced as the Gold Winner the 2013 Edison Awards® in the material science (composites) category, one of 12 categories honored at the prestigious award platform.  Constructed of aerospace-grade carbon fiber composite, the new Rawlings S100® Pro Comp™ batting helmet provides technologically-enhanced protection for ball impacts up to 100 miles per hour.  Rawlings is the Official Batting Helmet of Major League Baseball® and has begun its first year of league-wide mandated use of the S100 Pro Comp in 2013.

The distinguished awards symbolize the persistence and excellence personified by Thomas Alva Edison, inspiring creative minds to remain in the forefront of innovation, creativity and ingenuity in the global economy.  Rawlings was the only sporting goods company honored as an Edison Award finalist, and joined other global brands as finalists such as 3M, AT&T, Michelin and Square.

"More than any year, this year's slate of finalists demonstrated the enormous value of teamwork, experimentation, consumer focus, market awareness and game-changing success," said Frank Bonafilia, Edison Awards' executive director. "It's exciting to see companies like Rawlings continuing Thomas Edison's legacy of challenging conventional thinking."

Approximately 200 MLB players elected to wear the Rawlings S100 Pro Comp last year before the league-wide rule went into effect, including National League™ batting champion Buster Posey of the World Series™ champion San Francisco Giants™.

The Rawlings S100 Pro Comp helmets are designed to withstand a 100 miles-per-hour ball impact through its aerospace-grade carbon fiber/epoxy resin construction.  The design creates a 300-percent stiffer and 130 times stronger shell than traditional ABS plastic helmets used in the baseball industry.
