May 2018 Membership Luncheon

Thursday, May 17, 2018

11:00 am - 1:00 pm

SME is thrilled to have Jack Marucci as our speaker for the May 17th luncheon. 

Jack Marucci began in 1996 as the Director of Athletic Training at LSU. Since joining the Tigers, Marucci's leadership and vision have moved LSU to the forefront of Athletic Training at the collegiate level. He oversees the athletic training operation for all 20 varsity sports, which includes supervising a staff of eight full-time athletic trainers and 10 graduate assistants.

Marucci helped design the Broussard Center for Athletic Training at Tiger Stadium as well as the one located in the Football Operations Building, which the football team operates out of on a daily basis.

Off the field, Marucci has mastered the art of crafting wooden baseball bats and founded his own company, the Marucci Bat Company. The bat company, which originally started with a workshop in his backyard, now has dozens of Major Leaguers to its credit, including Albert Pujols, Carlos Beltran, David Wright, Chase Utley, Brad Hawpe and the 2006 NL MVP and home run champion Ryan Howard.

In July 2007, the Marucci Bat Company was represented in the Major League Baseball All-Star Game by eight different players. Marucci and his bat company have been featured in numerous national publications including the USA Today.

The Latest: Marucci Sports has become a supplier of the USA Softball Women’s National Team and Junior Women’s National Team programs. The Baton Rouge-based company’s line includes gloves, bats, batting gloves, bag and other softball-related apparel. The addition to the program’s supplier pool was announced this week by USA Softball, the sport’s national governing body.
