Marucci issued the response below:
June 6, 2012
Today we were notified that the 34-inch Cat 5² (MBC2) and 33 and 34-inch Black (MCB11) were decertified by the NCAA. We do not agree with this decision and believe the testing systems currently in place are flawed.
Our customers, both professional and amateur players, demand the very best and have come to expect a level of service from Marucci that is second to none.
In response to the NCAA’s ruling, we will provide all owners of the bats in question a comprehensive return program as proof of our commitment to you. Details on this program will be announced soon.
We thank you for your patience and support as we respond to the NCAA’s latest ruling and testing systems.
