CollClubSports has reached a 3-year agreement with Marucci Sports, for them to be the “Official Bat Provider of the NCBA and NCSA.”
“Marucci is excited to become an official partner of the NCBA & NCSA,” said Justin Cryer, Marucci Director of College Sales. “At Marucci, we’re committed to growing the games of baseball and softball at every level, and we’ve had tremendous success from the Big Leagues down to T-ball.

Often, Major League Baseball superstars such as Anthony Rizzo, Francisco Lindor, Buster Posey, and Albert Pujols can be spotted at the plate with Marucci bats in hand. In fact, an article posted on Forbes.com in 2016 tells us that Marucci has become “MLB’s Favorite Bat.” You can find the article here! Marucci debuted in the MLB back in 2006 holding just 5% of the market. Fast forward 12 years to today in 2018 & Marucci owns the largest share within the market as over 33% of MLB players swing a Marucci bat!
