Oakley Impacts The Two Oldest Parks In Baseball


The newest Rolling Lab navigated and squeezed into the narrow confines outside of Fenway Park last week for an event with local accounts, Red Sox players, and Red Sox personnel. Music was turned on outside the truck, which kept the throngs of Red Sox fans entertained while some local accounts and a few players checked out some Oakley HDO inside.

There were rave reviews for the new MLB Flak Jackets, especially the Red Sox piece which have been flying out the doors of local accounts. The Red Sox pitching staff including Clay Bucholz, Manny Delcarmen, Hideki Okajima, and Jonathan Papelbon got a private tour of the lab and were really impressed with the technology that Oakley puts in to its product as well as the lay out inside the newest Lab to hit the road. Before heading in to catch the game Red Sox legend Jim Rice stopped in to ask about the new Split Thumps and to tell us how much he loves golfing in his Flak Jackets.

After watching the Red Sox take down the Texas Rangers a few more players came through for a tour as thousands of fans exiting the Park got a final look at the Rolling Lab before it took off to do battle with the narrow streets of Boston.

Big thanks goes out to Adam Racioppi for pulling the lab in and out of some tight spots as well as the rest of the lab crew for creating this unique event at one of baseballs oldest ballparks.

Over the course of two amazing days in the heart of beautiful Chicago, the ever-impressive O Lab stood just outside Wrigley Field wowing passer byes as well as die-hard Oakley fans.

Wrigley Field, which was built in 1914, is the second oldest ballpark in the majors behind Boston’s Fenway Park (1912). The area surrounding this world famous ballpark is peppered with a wide assortment of sports bars and restaurants which offer an extensive variety of food and spirits any sports fan would dream of.

In game two of a three game series the Cincinnati Reds edged out the Cubs 2-1. It was only the second loss for the Cubs in their last nine contests.

It was in game three that the Cubs took the early lead in the 3rd making the score 3-0. This lead was uncontested until the eight inning when the Reds, Joey Votto tightened things, crushing a pitch by Carlos Marmol onto Sheffield Ave to make it a one run game.

Throughout the two day even, the O Lab kept the pre and post game party going by giving exciting lab tours and pumping the tunes through its supercharged sound system.
