American Legion Baseball has announced an official license partnership with Marucci Sports that will give American Legion Baseball teams and players special discounted prices on Marucci baseball bats and related products.
Marucci will also offer special team packages to member teams, including deals on the company's famous hand-crafted wood bats. This opportunity should prove valuable, as many Legion teams use wood bats for league play. And many players practice with wooden bats to prepare themselves for their professional careers.
Marucci baseball bats are bat-ball coefficient of restitution certified (BBCOR certified).

Based out of Baton Rouge, La., Marucci comes from humble beginnings. Jack Marucci started the company 10 years ago in a 6-foot-by-9-foot tool shed, along with help from former major-leaguers Kurt Ainsworth and Joe Lawrence. Known for its high-quality wood bats, Marucci now provides wood bats for more than 300 major-league players, including Albert Pujols, Andrew McCutchen, José Bautista and David Ortiz.
Marucci is majority owned by professional players and uses its player advisory board to design the game’s most innovative product line-up, which includes wood and aluminum bats, batting gloves and protective equipment.
