About the Marucci Softball Line
The PURE softball bat features Marucci's SDX connection technology, which dismisses vibrations and maximizes positive feel on contact, while its ring-free barrel technology and 2-piece composite construction offers the ultimate sweet spot with a power-balanced weight distribution for improved swing speed and effortless power. Marucci also offers high-end softball fielding gloves and batting gloves which are engineered specifically for the female athlete.
Based in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Marucci was founded by two former Major Leaguers and their athletic trainer who began handcrafting bats from their garage. Fast forward 10 years, and that dedication to quality and understanding of players' needs has turned the company into an All-American success story with Marucci being the number one bat in the Big Leagues. Today, Marucci makes wood and aluminum bats, batting gloves, protective gear, and other baseball and softball accessories. Star players like Albert Pujols, Chase Utley, David Ortiz, Jose Bautista, and Andrew McCutchen invest their hard-earned money and time to advise Marucci on product design and test its products.
