Baton Rouge’s Jack Marucci, owner of the local company Marucci Sports, is the subject of a profile published in the latest issue of the glossy men’s monthly magazine, Men’s Journal.

In the story, “Jack Marucci, The Hitmaker,” reporter Josh Eells writes, “You’ve probably never heard of Jack Marucci, but he is one of the most important men in baseball.”

Eells writes about Marucci and his company which produces bats for more than 300 pro baseball players.

“After Louisville Slugger, Marucci makes the most popular bat in the majors,” Eells writes.
