OUR TEAM

Our Dugout's mugs on Dugout Mugs®! Our team is built on the same core values that you will find in a baseball dugout. We like to have fun, we like to tell stories, we like to slap hands, we like to cheer each other on, and we love working together to ensure you know you are the most important part of our dugout. No order is too small or too large - we love earning your business, so much so - that we would take a 3-0 fastball down the middle of the plate to earn it. That's saying a lot.

Randall Thompson

President & Founder

Randall started playing the game of baseball at 5 years old and eventually got paid to play thanks to the Toronto Blue Jays. From a very young age, he always had two unexplainable loves: baseball and being creative. Filled with concepts and ideas (some better than others) he eventually combined the two and founded Dugout Mugs®, and introduced the Dugout Mug, the Wined Up, and the Knob Shot. In his free time, Randall likes to play tetherball and read about patent and trademark law.
