BATON ROUGE, LA – Marucci Founder’s Club announces continued alliance with Marucci Elite Texas on Wednesday.
“We are pleased to announce Marucci Elite Texas (METx) has re-signed an agreement and will remain in the Founders’ Club,” said Kyle Achord, Marucci’s Vice President of Team Sales. “METx is one of our fastest growing organizations, so we are thrilled they will stay part of the Marucci family. We have a great relationship with their leadership and are excited about what the future holds with their organization and facility. Their coaches and players commitment to the Marucci brand is second to none.”
Founded in 2013 by former Big Leaguer Adam Dunn, the Marucci Elite Texas program originated in Houston and quickly expanded across the state. Boasting 79 teams between 7U and 18U, METx affiliate teams now hail from Houston, Corpus Christi, Dallas, San Antonio, Tyler and Laredo.
The club’s coaches and staff are committed to developing players for the next stage of baseball. METx alumni number over 60 collegiate signees with several moving up to the professional level. Marucci Elite Texas is also a decorated participant of the Marucci World Series including 2019 Co-Champions for the 15U and 17U divisions, two 2017 Home Run Derby titles, and the 2016 Fastest Man.
By signing a five-year extension with the Founders’ Club, the organization hopes to further grow the relationship between Marucci and the families throughout Texas. “We are extremely excited and honored to continue our relationship with Marucci,” said Dunn. “We are proud to offer our players the very best products, but more importantly, we receive the very best service from the best team around. We would not be where we are today without them. Marucci is family.”
About the Marucci Founders’ Club
The founders of Marucci built the company on a dedication to superior quality and a relentless pursuit of excellence that extended beyond the game of baseball. That pursuit of excellence has allowed Marucci to forge partnerships with some of the nation’s premier amateur baseball and softball organizations. With core values that align with those of the Marucci Founders, these programs were selected for their dedication to excellence on and off the field, reputation as a positive influence in their community, and commitment to growing their organization and, in turn, the Marucci mission. We call this elite alliance the Founders’ Club.
