What is SwingKong?
We're glad you asked! The easy answer is that SwingKong is a brand of athletic leisure clothing designed to have a great look while staying extremely comfortable. However, the truth is, SwingKong was created from a vision by our founding partner, Cory Newman, that is WAY BIGGER than simply a clothing brand...It's a brand of clothing designed to reflect a way of life. When we say and encourage our fans to #HitItHard, it's not just about hitting a golf ball, a softball, a baseball, a volleyball, etc. it's about how you hit everything. Whether it's a ball, a court, a field, the gym, your career, or even work around the house, those who wear SwingKong ALWAYS hit it hard! Remember, no one has every achieved great things by taking it easy, so #HitItHard.
Cory Newman, Who is he?
Let's put it this way... Cory Newman IS SwingKong and SwingKong IS Cory Newman. A great guy from a small town in Illinois who grew up with a love for the game of baseball his entire life, who now calls St. Louis his home. Nearly everything in his life has revolved around baseball, playing through high school and college. It wasn't until after college that Cory realized baseball had taught him far more than just how to catch, throw, and swing a bat. It had instilled in him the desire to always hit everything hard, hence our motto. Today, while continuing to drive SwingKong to bigger and better things, Cory travels the country as a professional slow-pitch softball player. Yes, there is such a thing. Stay tuned for an exciting new video series that will give you a glimpse into Cory's life as a professional softball player!
