AFR 3-10-2020 Hour 2 | Marucci sells for $200 Million

Weekdays 3PM - 6PM

CEO of Marucci Bats and former LSU pitcher Kurt Ainsworth joins Matt to talk the sale of the company to Compass Diver for $200 million. How long has this been in the works?

“It’s been going on since mid last year. A lot of things have been going well for us, and we were appoarched by a lot of groups,” Ainsworth said. “It worked out well for us. The group we wanted to win ended up doing so in the end.”

What stood out about Compass that made them the most attractive buyer?

“They have a history of working with high end brands,” Ainsworth said. “They took FOX public.”

Host of Sports225 Lee Feinswog joins Matt to talk LSU Basketball and give his beer recommendation. LSU is headed to the SEC Tournament in Nashville as the No. 3 and with the double bye. Who does Feinswog believe the Tigers will play on Friday night?

“Well LSU should hope to play South Carolina. Arkansas and Vanderbilt are so bad you don’t want to play them because they bring nothing to the table,” Feinswog said. “If you play South Carolina, and then win another game you could get off the 8/9 line.”

In segment three Matt talks the latest NFL mock draft. Can Joe Burrow have success in Cincinnati?
