The Merc Bat Company, founded by local Cranston RI businessman Mark Mercurio of Go East Promotional Products is a local resource for all things baseball equipment. K Performance owner, Cranston native, and respected baseball coach Mark Cahill is the President of Sales and Marketing for the Rhode Island based sporting goods company. Coach Cahill brings his 40 plus years of baseball knowledge and experience to Merc Bat Company to promote the products to local schools, youth organizations, and professional ball players.
“We have a few different quality bats available,” said Cahill in a recent interview at Lischio Field prior to a local under-18 baseball practice. “You are going to need that kind of quality bat if you are facing kids throwing in the 80 to 90 and above range in terms of miles per hour.” Merc Bat Company offers bats at the Pro, Elite, and Youth Transitional levels. The Pro line, which according to Cahill “is designed for less than 80 mph or more for the youth and travel team players.” At the time of our interview, Cahill was working with a few local sporting goods retailers such as Elmwood Sports on stocking the Merc Bats. “We have all of our product available right now here in RI at our Warwick distribution center. I can have customers pickup or we can arrange to have the bats delivered if need be.” Coach Cahill also mentioned that the Merc Bat Company sells a premium baseball, which he said was “just a better baseball, high durability, has a great feel to it,” which “pitchers love to throw and hitters love to drive.” The Merc Bat Company baseball meets all NFHS (National Federation High School) standards for quality. I asked Mark about what Merc Bat Company can offer the baseball consumer. Coach Cahill replied confidently, “A high quality product at an affordable price, that’s our goal at Merc Bat Company.”

The RIBBE is The Rhode Island Baseball Experience. It is promoting the game of baseball here in the great state of Rhode Island for the entire baseball world to see. The RIBBE is positive stories, photos, videos, and responsible social media posts. The RIBBE is an information resource for families looking for an AAU team or a summer camp or a great place to buy a first baseman’s mitt.
