Marucci Sports announced on 9/10 that the Omaha Tigers Baseball Club has joined the newly formed Franchise Club.
“The Omaha Tigers Baseball Club is very excited to become a Franchise Club member. Being a Founder’s Club member for the previous 3 years has been awesome, and we are now ready to take it to the next level. Marucci and Victus products, along with Kyle, Raph and the rest of the staff will continue to be an asset to our players, coaches, families and fans. The Omaha Tigers and Ultimate Baseball Academy are looking forward to keeping this strong relationship with Marucci for years to come,” said Dave Vallinch, Director of the Omaha Tigers.
“With the facilities and staff they have, the Omaha Tigers are without a doubt the best program in Nebraska and we look forward to helping them get even stronger,” continued Kyle Achord, Marucci’s Vice President of Team Sales.
The Omaha Tigers have been a premier youth organization in the Marucci Founders’ Club and will now be further integrated with the Marucci and Victus brands as a member of the Franchise Club. Additionally, they will be granted the use of Marucci and Victus in their team names, giving them nationwide recognition from two of the hottest brands in baseball.
“Dave, the Omaha Tigers, and the Ultimate Baseball Academy staff are a pleasure to work with. They have a heart for the game of baseball and helping their players. We love the passion of their coaches, players, and parents. We are excited they will be representing the Marucci and Victus brands,” said Achord.
Both brands are committed to supporting the Franchise Clubs to grow and reach new heights. Since its inception, the Franchise Club has seen immense growth, with the Omaha Tigers being the 14th team to join.
