Trigon Sports Int., Inc. announced the acquisition of Practice Partner, Inc. located in Wilmington, NC, effective March 1, 2021. Trigon Sports will acquire the Practice Partner assets, supply chain and customer base. The merged business will continue operating in Memphis, TN.
The combined entities will bring additional depth to the existing ProCage/Trigon Sports product line and expand its network of team sports dealers across the country.
Practice Partner was founded in 1982 by Joseph Rajacich, a father of two little league ballplayers, who saw the need for a better way to practice at home. Under the leadership of Rajacich’s sons, Alex and Andrew, the Practice Partner group of products expanded into a full line of team sports training aids.
Andrew Rajacich said, “I am so happy to see our great friends at Trigon Sports revitalize the Practice Partner name and look forward to seeing them continue to develop products that advance the skills of athletes.”
Chris Bawcum, Trigon Sports vice president, said, “We are excited to acquire the Practice Partner name and product line. We have personally known the Rajacichs for nearly 20 years. We look forward to the addition of Practice Partner’s products to our established ProCage line of sports equipment and adding their existing customer base to the Trigon family.”
“Expanding into the backyard practice market proved invaluable during the past year as team sports were delayed or canceled,” stated Jonathan Bawcum, vice president, Trigon Sports. “The acquisition of Practice Partner allows us the ability to offer quality practice equipment to athletes at all levels of play. Trigon Sports will continue to look for growth opportunities within our industry as we continue to Make Winning Possible.”
