With this partnership, the company will serve as OU's exclusive source for helmets, fielding gloves and custom aluminum/wood bats.
"We have been familiar with Marucci for a long time as a premier manufacturer of baseball equipment, and we are excited to work with them to bring their high-quality products to our program," head coach Skip Johnson said in a press release.
According to Marucci's website, the Sooners will become its 26th Division I partner and the second Big 12 partner alongside Baylor.
Now entering their fourth season under Johnson, the Sooners have high expectations after starting the shortened 2020 season 14-4 and rising as high as No. 9 in the national polls. Perhaps their most notable win of the season came against a fellow Marucci partner, LSU in the Shriners Hospitals for Children College Classic.
