Marucci Sports announced on 9/3 that the Richmond County Baseball Club has joined the newly formed Franchise Club.
“We owe our entire relationship with the Richmond County Baseball Club to Tanna McClure’s gumbo. Ever since sharing some Cajun food with Nick DeFendis a few years ago in Jupiter, our relationship with him, Jimmy, and the RCBC staff has taken off,” said Kyle Achord, Marucci Sports’ Vice President of Team Sales.
Richmond County is a premier travel baseball program located in the Northeast. The Richmond County Baseball Club is now the tenth team to sign a new multi-year deal to join the exclusive Franchise Club.
“We look forward to beginning this new chapter with them as they continue to become one of the top programs in the Northeast. Our staff is eager to watch the RCBC teams play in the Marucci World Series each year, as they are always well coached and play hard,” continued Achord.
With Richmond County joining the Franchise Club, they will be granted rights to use Marucci and Victus in their team names. Accompanying the naming rights, Richmond County will now have a deeper integration with the two brands. Marucci and Victus look forward to participating in the future growth of the organization. Marucci Sports’ mission is to always offer the best products and service to all of their partners, which is what led to the partnership extension with the Richmond County Baseball Club. The Franchise Club represents an increased commitment between Marucci, Victus and the organizations.
“We are excited about stepping it up with Marucci and Victus. The Marucci family brings unique opportunities for us to share in the Northeast. Their quality products and presence in the MLB and youth sports sets us apart from our competition,” said Nick DeFendis, Director of the Richmond County Baseball Club.
Marucci Sports is excited about the top travel ball organizations throughout the country representing the two hottest brands in baseball. Both brands are committed to supporting the Franchise Clubs to grow and reach new heights.
