Marucci Houston, located at 2626 W. Sam Houston Pkwy N., has undergone recent renovations to become the region’s ultimate baseball and softball training facility. The complex’s 11 fields are manicured to meet the highest of standards of its Major League Baseball partners and athletes, all of whom have college and/or professional baseball experience.

RedLine Athletics has custom-designed training models which enable young athletes to further develop skills in their chosen sport ranging from football to volleyball to baseball and additional sports. Houston is the second franchise expansion for RedLine Athletics. They recently opened in Scottsdale, Arizona earlier this year with the original facility in San Juan Capistrano, California.

Athletes will have the opportunity to complete a training program that is totally their own, focused on core stability, speed improvement, running form, agility, acceleration, and strength training with RedLine Athletics.

Native Houstonian and former MLB pitcher, Mike Sirotka, has been named the general manager for RedLine Athletics at Marucci Houston, overseeing the day-to-day operations including all instruction, training and strength conditioning. Sirotka is a two-time NCAA National Champion with the LSU Tigers, who then went on to an 11 year professional baseball career.

“Houston has a great tradition of youth sports and we are excited to get started. We have already begun working with athletes before our grand opening on June 19, with RedLine Mobile and our Conditioning Camp,” said Sirotka. “At RedLine Athletics, you train like a pro with the pros. We are committed to nurturing young people to each become the best athlete and person they can be.”

In 2013, the complex formerly known as Baseball USA underwent major renovations, with native Houstonian and MLB power hitter, Adam Dunn, leading the charge. Bringing in additional MLB player partners, such as Lance Berkman and Carl Crawford, they teamed up with Marucci Sports, one of the most respected brands in baseball, with one goal in mind – to become the best training facility in the country.

Marucci Houston’s general manager, Chris Schultea, said they’re looking forward to opening their doors to RedLine Athletics and athletes from all sports. “We are committed to honoring the game by helping young athletes develop their skills, both on and off the field,” he said.
