Tiger Outfielder and Avid Angler, Clete Thomas, Tours The SKB Factory

August 27, 2009

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

Clete is certainly no stranger to fan clubs and we were pleased to learn that 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 producing 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 products 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 appreciates. Now back to the ballpark for some home runs of my own".
