Playing for MARUCCI prepared me for the next level in terms of on and off the field. Playing with and against the best players in the country was one of the best experiences I ever had, and I couldn’t have experienced it without MARUCCI.

It’s been a once in a lifetime experience playing for Marucci Elite. It’s the right fit for guys who want to learn how to play the game the right way.

My son, O’Neal’s, experience with Marucci has been absolutely fantastic. From day one, it was clear he was going to be taught by the best coaches out there – guys who played baseball at the highest levels and who know “what it takes”. They focused on improving the players’ skills and, just as important, baseball IQ. They expected top notch performance from the players, and told them exactly that.
 
Plus, the level of talent that was put together was incredible.  As the summer season continued, the players got better individually just from playing together and from watching each other perform.  They fed off each other, and everyone improved as a result.
 
Our family was pretty “green” about the recruiting process, at first.  Playing for Marucci was the best baseball decision we could have made. The exposure O’Neal got from wearing “MARUCCI” across his chest was invaluable.  Once the season began, it became obvious that college recruiters focus on the top summer teams.  That meant they went wherever Marucci played.   It is as simple as this: he was fortunate enough to get scholarship offers from top D1 programs directly because of his summer on the Marucci team, period.
 
He has had a great experience so far with Marucci, and is looking forward to more for the next couple years!

I had the pleasure of helping Chad coach the 18u elite team; it is hands down the best program any kid in the country could participate in. They have the perfect blend of development, showcasing and winning that the players cant find anywhere else. Not to mention the success rate of placing kids in elite college programs as well as in the MLB draft which is unparalleled anywhere in the country!

Marucci is one of the best hands down on getting kids exposure from professional & the college ranks. Not to forget playing against the best competition in the country.  To go along with the facilities, apparel and the bats. For me it’s a win-win combination.

Marrucci continues to be one of the top Amatuer programs in the country. Year in and year out their rosters are stacked with some of the best talent in the country, which is a testament to their organization efforts throughout the calendar year.

Playing with Marucci this past year was Nicholas’s best experience of his young baseball career. We are very appreciative to Chad for allowing Nicholas the opportunity to play for such a prestigious baseball organization. The team that Chad put together was outstanding. Not only were they elite players with high baseball intellect, they were also young men of high character. The baseball aspect of Nick’s experience speaks for itself, but what we were pleased with as parents was the way Nicholas was able to enjoy himself while with the team. During their time off the field the players went to malls, played video games, went swimming, etc. Nicholas always had a smile on his face when spending time with the team. As parents we are raising Nicholas to become a young man of character with Christian morals and values; a young man that will be a positive role model for all future athletes. We were very pleased to see that the players that Nick surrounded himself with while playing for Marucci displayed the same character traits that we are building in him.

Not only did the team have good chemistry, the parents did as well. We enjoyed being around all of the parents who were able to make the trips. The parents were encouraging to their own sons as well as the team as a whole. They were also extremely supportive of the coaching staff.

Lastly, the exposure that Nicholas received while playing with Marucci was unparalleled. He played in front of scouts from every professional baseball team and a majority of college coaches as well. At the conclusion of the season we could not have asked for a better summer baseball experience for Nicholas.

Nick is VERY excited about the next two years of baseball with Marucci!”

Coach Raley does an outstanding job providing an environment for his players to grow and develop by playing in the toughest tournaments around the country. Marruci Elite is one of the premier programs in the country. Arizona has been fortunate to get Marruci Elite players and looks forward to recruiting more of their players in the future.

As a coach at Post Oak Little League I rely heavily on Baseball USA. With multiple first class indoor batting cages and field options BBUSA accommodates all of my team’s needs. In addition to the fantastic complex the instruction provided to our players by former major leaguer Kevin Witt has been instrumental in helping our team improve in all areas of the game.
