BATON ROUGE – Marucci Sports announced Friday that the Georgia Bombers have been selected to join its Founders’ Club, an elite alliance with amateur baseball and softball teams.
The Bombers were co-founded in 2015 by former pro Aaron Alvarez and Georgia Tech standout Wes Rynders. Located primarily in Alpharetta, Georgia, the organization currently fields 18 teams ranging from 8U-17U.
“We are excited to add the Georgia Bombers to our already impressive list of Founders’ Club organizations,” said Kyle Achord, Marucci VP of Team Sales. “We have kept an eye on the Bombers organization the last few years. With their accomplishments, growth, and location, it made sense for us to add them to the Marucci Founders’ Club. Aaron and Wes are great guys that we look forward to working with and helping their organization moving forward.”
One of just 11 organizations in the country to win at least 100 Perfect Game contests in 2018, the Bombers have totaled 42 Perfect Game Championships and 44 other tournament titles. The group has produced 128 college commitments, including Kent State Freshman All-American Justin Kirby and Auburn second baseman Ryan Bliss, and 10 draft picks.
“Bombers Baseball is honored to join the elite group of organizations within the Marucci Founders’ Club Family,” Alvarez and Rynders said in a joint statement. “The Marucci team and products are first class and we are beyond excited to see what the futures holds with our new partnership!”
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.
