“Our Founders’ Club program, and now our Franchise Club program, is centered around partnering with the right people and organizations. Nelson and the Illinois Travel Baseball Club are just that. We are thrilled that they will be moving forward as a Franchise Club program and representing the Marucci and Victus brands. The Franchise Club is a true partnership and ITBC has our full support in helping them reach the goals they have for their program,” said Kyle Achord, Marucci Sports’ Vice President of Team Sales.
