On this very special episode of Spin It On Sports, we get an inside look into one of the most innovative businesses out there: Dugout Mugs. They are taking baseball bats and turning them into high-quality beer mugs, shot glasses and wine glasses.

Today we’re talking with marketing expert and CEO of Dugout Mugs, Kris Dehnert. Kris knew his business partner Randall Thompson had created something special when he made beer mugs out of baseball bats. So after years of owning his own media group, Kris joined Randall and they created the company, Dugout Mugs. The mugs they created are now showcased by some of the most prestigious people, players and organizations in the baseball industry.

Today, Kris talks about the challenges he faced early on with the company. He shares how his love for his job has impacted his life for the better. And he talks about the value of respecting other's time, which can really make or break your business.
