Dedication to quality and an understanding of players’ needs took Marucci from a backyard shed in Baton Rouge to the No.1 bat in the Big Leagues. Started in 2004 by two former pros and their athletic trainer, Marucci is proudly founded and operated by Big Leaguers. Star players including Albert Pujols, Buster Posey, Anthony Rizzo and Francisco Lindor are partners in the company and advise, test, and approve all Marucci products. Today, Marucci manufactures wood and aluminum/composite baseball and fastpitch bats, gloves, on-field and lifestyle apparel, sunglasses and other baseball and fastpitch softball gear. In addition to being the most-used bat in the Big Leagues and top-selling metal bat, Marucci is also the official equipment provider to top college programs, elite travel ball organizations, and outfits hundreds of high school and youth teams nationwide.
