The history of baseball is so rich it earned the name "America’s Pastime."

Paying homage to the greats that were, in order to carve a place for the phenoms that will be, take the field with confidence armed with superior technology and Marucci's unwavering commitment to crafting excellence.

BBCOR Certified Baseball Bat
The BBCOR formula provides a better measure of the bat's performance and therefore allows the rules committee and bat testing laboratories to better predict field performance based on lab tests. The goal is that non-wood bats that meet this new standard will perform similarly to wood bats. All BBCOR bats will incorporate a logo mark once certification approval is granted. This mark will be consistent across every approved bat design so umpires will easily identify approved bats.
