On August 16th, 2021 Marucci announced it has added the South Oakland A’s to their Founders’ Club.
“As we continue to search for the right organizations across the country to add to our Founders’ Club, we came across the South Oakland A’s. We like the direction their organization is headed and want to help them achieve the goals they have for their organization. We believe they are a good fit with our brands and look forward to seeing more Marucci and Victus products on fields across Michigan,” Kyle Achord, Marucci Vice President of Team Sales.
The Founders’ Club is an elite alliance of the nation’s premier amateur baseball and softball organizations, hand-picked by Marucci. These programs are 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.
Steve Flores, Program Director, said “the South Oakland A’s are honored to become a member of the Founders' Club and join so many great programs. As one of the premier organizations in the state of Michigan, it only makes sense to partner with the best brand in baseball!”
Organizations in the Founders’ Club are granted exclusive benefits, early-access to products and an invitation to compete at the Marucci World Series. Together, Marucci and South Oakland A’s staff will provide a premium experience for the players and parents in the organization.
