Marucci Longball Challenge

With Marucci signing on as the new “Official Baseball Bat” of the NCBA, 2019 will mark the first ever Marucci Longball Challenge.  Last year saw Zach Broussely of Grand Canyon University becoming the 2018 DeMarini Longball Challenge Champion after hitting 3 homeruns in the final round to outlast Tommy Kim of the University of North Texas and Logan Walden of ECU.  Even though Broussely took home the championship, Tommy Kim put on quite a show in the challenge hitting the most homeruns of any competitor.  Tommy finished with 17 homeruns and walked off to a standing ovation in the first round after hitting 11.  But in the final round, Zach hit 3 homeruns to Tommy’s 2 to claim the championship.  Not only does Zach gets bragging rights, but he also gets to design and keep a custom DeMarini Bat.
