    Marucci NightShift: The Anti-Collection

    The Marucci gloves you love, in designs you can’t help but talk about.

    He may be Marucci’s Fielding Glove Designer and Developer Eric Walbridge by day, but by night the creativity of Glove Cowboy knows no bounds. What started years ago as reinventing the Marucci glove lines has morphed into an after-hours, passion obsession-project, creating gloves the glove world hasn’t seen ... until now.

    Intentionally uncomplicated, deliberately unrepeated, make-you-stop-and-stare [gloves].

    The Marucci NightShift Collection aims to leave a mark on the glove scene, not just a mark in the leather. Familiar, but different. Accessible, but limited. 

    “I’m a man of the people – I’m here to give them what they want: a Marucci glove + no rules. Okay, maybe that’s just what I want ... either way ... the NightShift is a relaxed approach to an uptight market. These are more than custom-colored gloves – these are untold stories, pop culture references and untethered inspiration distilled into the product I love. Oh, and they catch things!”

          – Eric Walbridge aka Glove Cowboy

    “Designing gloves is my passion, but designing these gloves is an outlet, a duty, a compulsion I can’t not explore. The NightShift Collection is from me, to the world, after hours. Hours when I’m more creative. It knows no bounds and will completely change from one drop to the next. This glove might not be for you, but maybe the next one is. And in that case, we’ll see you next time.”

          – Eric Walbridge aka Glove Cowboy

    Introducing the Marucci CatX Lineup

    Meet the Marucci baseball bats crafted to dominate BBCOR and USSSA competition.

    Optimized from End to End, the Cat X is the result of data from the best players translated into quantifiable improvements. From barrel profile adjustments to ergonomically fitted handle tapers for each weight drop, the Cat X is built for faster swings and higher overall performance.

    CATX Composite BBCOR -3

    Finely tuned barrel profile creates a slightly more balanced design to help players generate faster swing speeds while maintaining larger composite barrels. S-40 composite handle helps to transfer more energy faster from player to ball for more performance, while the outer-locking system dismisses virtually all vibrations on contact for the strongest, smoothest swing yet.

    CAT9 Composite Break-In Guide

    The CAT9 Composite is constructed to be meaner, hotter and bolder. Follow this break-in guide to make sure your CAT9 Composite is ready to go come game time.

    Although the CAT9 Composite is hot out of the wrapper, most composite baseball bats still require a break-in to reach their optimal in-game performance level. You utilize this break-in period to loosen the resin and composite fibers inside of the barrel so the material can be more responsive upon contact.

    Make sure your bat is game-ready by following this 6-step guide.

    Composite bats are high-performance products and have a lifespan that is directly related to the number of impacts they receive. We recommend that once your bat has completed the below break-in procedure it is saved for game use only to increase the longevity of its performance.

    This procedure should be performed gradually to ensure the bat is broken-in properly. Hitting composite bats at speeds faster than they are designed to withstand can cause premature cracking and damage the bat before reaching its full performance potential.

    1. Hit 50 balls off a tee using about 50% power. Make sure to rotate the bat ¼” between each hit.

    2. Hit 50 balls off a tee using about 75% power. Make sure to rotate the bat ¼” between each hit.

    3. Hit 50 balls from soft toss using about 75% power. Make sure to rotate the bat ¼” between each hit.

    4. Hit 50 balls from soft toss using 100% power. Make sure to rotate the bat ¼” between each hit.

    5. Hit 50 balls off a pitching machine or live pitching using 100% power. The pitching speed should be about 50% of the fastball speed you normally face. Make sure to rotate the bat ¼” between each hit.

    6. Hit 50 balls off a pitching machine or live pitching using 100% power. The pitching speed should be about 75% to 100% of the fastball speed you normally face. Make sure to rotate the bat ¼” between each hit.

    After 300 hits, your bat will be prepped and ready for game use. Remember, composite bat lifespans are directly related to how many impacts it receives. We recommend that you save your bat for game use only, once broken-in.

    Introducing the Marucci CAT9

    Introducing the CAT9 and CAT9 CONNECT

    The CAT9 and CAT9 Connect are the most advanced bats in the Marucci lineup to date. We created a more responsive aluminum microstructure for better feel, more forgiveness and more performance, while maintaining the strength of its predecessor.

    Here at Marucci, we are fueled by technology, and we continuously strive to deliver the best products to the best athletes. Since the beginning we have delivered the hardest hitting bats available, and with the CAT9 and CAT9 Connect, we continue that legacy.

    Let’s take a deeper look at both the CAT9 and CAT9 Connect.

     

    CAT9 

    The CAT9 is the most advanced one-piece aluminum bat on the market. It is a precision balanced, one-piece alloy design with a medium M.O.I. For athletes who favor a mid-balanced metal bat, the CAT9 is the right choice. Both power-hitters and contact-hitters will enjoy the feel and performance of the CAT9.

    Designed with a thermally treated AZR alloy for a more responsive and forgiving feel, the balanced one-piece CAT9 features a massive sweet spot that is ready to damage right out of the wrapper. No break in necessary.

    The one-piece CAT9 is available in five sizes: BBCOR certified -3 and USSSA certified -5-8-10 and Junior Big Barrel -10.

     

    CAT9 CONNECT

    The CAT9 Connect features a more end-loaded feel for athletes that thrive on driving the ball further. Utilizing the same three-stage thermally treated aluminum process as the CAT9, you can expect our most responsive barrel yet. Athletes who strive to produce power will love the CAT9 Connect.

    Further, the CAT9 Connect introduces the first-of-its-kind OLS Connection. This brand-new technology connects the aluminum barrel to the carbon composite handle from the outside in. The previous CAT8 Connect featured our SDX EXT Connection, and with the CAT9, we built advancements to make our two-piece even better for a stiffer feel and smoother swing.

    The CAT9 Connect is available in four sizes: BBCOR certified -3 and USSSA certified -5, -8 and -10.

     

    We fabricated a piece of metal into a finely-tuned tool for today’s elite player. Using our proprietary, complex thermal treatments, we created a more responsive aluminum microstructure for better feel, more forgiveness and more performance, while maintaining the strength of its predecessor. On the end-loaded CAT9 Connect, we upgraded to an Outer-Locking System for a stiffer connection, while dismissing virtually all vibrations on contact.

    As always, there are no artificial rings, “dead” spots or compromises. It’s not the easy way, it’s the Marucci way. There are no shortcuts or easy routes, and with the CAT9, we crafted excellence.
