At Marucci, we make our products the same way you play baseball: Hard work, determination, and attention to detail. This product is handcrafted. We are committed to never releasing a product before it meets the standard set forth by our wood bat. Our process is proven. The only way to achieve perfection is to accept nothing else. We first have gloves to Big Leaguers in our inner circle to break in and critique - knowing the extreme situations they would be put in. Players like Chase Utley allowed us to comprehend what a player needs and looks for in an ideal fielding glove. The Marucci player advisory board was integral in testing, tweaking, and ultimately perfecting the glove line to have the feel and features that matter to players. Understanding this professional standard of perfection has allowed us to handcraft a performance product that will last consistently maximize your game. Handcrafted, one by one, with the highest quality materials, for superior quality and feel, these gloves will require a gradual break-in period which provides a longer lasting form and shape.

The Customer Service of this organization is remarkable. Each and every interaction I've had on the phone for any need (has been met with finding a polite, professional, and personable individual that clearly is looking to make sure the customer is satisfied and put first. I know from experience that this isn't the case just when they are looking to make a sale. I personally have also reached out recently regarding an online purchase where it is most likely that we (my wife and I) ordered the wrong glove accidentally and realized this the day before it arrived. I called the company and they didn't care whether or not it was our fault or their fault that the incorrect glove was being shipped. They were clearly only concerned with making the situation right for us. They not only immediately sent out a return label for the incorrect glove to be returned once we got it, but far more importantly sent out the correct glove that same aftrn that we spoke, and offered to overnight air the correct glove to me (at their expense) so we would not have to wait. They covered this expedited service and had no interest in who may have been at fault for the wrong glove being originally shipped. I cannot speak highly enough about the quality of not only the staff, but also the service they provide and the way they run their business. I would highly recommend Justballgloves.com to anyone considering this type of purchase. You will not be disappointed.
