In 2013, a group of Marucci Sports partners, including former MLB All-Star Adam Dunn, took over operations of Baseball USA “The Yard” Powered by Marucci. A youth baseball program (ages 9-14), playing as the “Marucci Houston Bulls”, was formed in the Fall of 2013. In the Summer of 2014, Marucci Houston added a high school program (ages 15-17) that was aimed at helping players garner exposure and attention from college coaches and professional scouts.
In the Fall of 2016, with expansion in mind, the youth and high school programs were rebranded, and the Marucci Elite Texas era was born. While Houston is the home of Marucci Elite Texas, we have expanded our reach throughout Texas. We are currently represented by affiliates in six different areas across the state.
San Antonio (2017)
Dallas/Fort Worth (2017)
East Texas (2018)
Sienna Plantation (2018)
Corpus Christi/Brownsville (2018)
