About Guardian Baseball & Its Founders
Dedicated to helping Louisville children enjoy “America’s Pastime”, Guardian Baseball was created for baseball lovers by baseball lovers. We strive to bring the community together through good sportsmanship and nurture leadership skills and teamwork, while players enjoy more time outdoors and improve their fitness and health.
Who Is Guardian Sports?
Founded in 2017, Guardian Sports is the brainchild of Zev Bernard and Matt Kubancik. Both men grew up immersed in the sport – they played from the age of just five years old, waited in line to get autographs at the stadium, and thought there was nothing better in the world than breaking in a new baseball glove or pair of cleats.
A former college baseball player originally from Los Angeles, Zev is passionate about the sport, but even more so about getting today’s youth involved at an early age. In addition to his role with Guardian Sports, Zev operates an indoor training facility in the heart of Louisville and is involved with 15 different youth travel baseball teams.
Matt loved and played baseball from an early age, and enrolled his kids in one of Zev’s teams. When the two met, they immediately connected and became friends. What would eventually become Guardian Baseball grew from that mutual love of the sport and deep friendship.
At Guardian Sports, our mission is simple – to ensure that you have the gear you need to play your best. We care about the success of all baseball players, current and future, and we’re dedicated to the future of the game.
We guarantee the best gear at the best price. It’s as simple as that. Thanks to co-founder Zev Bernard’s background as a college ballplayer and long-time coach, we have been able to secure unique deals with brands like Rawlings, Wilson, Louisville Slugger, Mizuno, and other top baseball equipment companies, allowing us to source equipment at below-market prices. We then bring those savings to players, parents, coaches, and teams throughout Kentucky and across the United States.
Guardian Baseball Gear
As long-time players, fans, and coaches, we understand the critical role that baseball equipment plays in safety and the ability to compete. Every single piece of gear is crucial, from a batting helmet that fits properly to the right size cleats and a properly-fitted glove. We also understand the role that quality design and manufacturing plays.
That’s why we work with brands that have been mainstays of the sport for decades, as well as innovative new companies. Our goal is to ensure that you and your player or team always have the best quality gear for safety, performance, and, most importantly, fun on the field.
You’ll find that we carry just about everything your ballplayer or team needs, from gloves to cleats, sunglasses to accessories, protective gear, and bats. We also offer a selection of closeout deals. These are limited quantities with ultra-low pricing and won’t last long.
