About Guardian Baseball


Founded in 2017 by Zev Bernard and Matt Kubancik, Guardian Baseball is a purpose-driven new-age digital retailer that supplies the largest selection of baseball and softball gear at the best price in the industry.

The company is the fastest-growing equipment vendor on Amazon, and the growth has been fueled by the customer-first policy which includes industryleading shipping, returns, and The Guardian 6-Month Extended Warranty.

Today, Guardian's team is over 50 people deep, including leading minds in eCommerce, sporting goods, and even a former World Series Athlete: Brandon Guyer. But while Guardian Baseball continues to grow, the company's mission of making the baseball community a better place will never change. With the best industry selection and some of the world's top brands, Guardian Baseball is doing exactly that.

Guardian Baseball also became the first sports retailer partially-owned by a professional athlete by welcoming Matt Joyce, a 14-year MLB veteran and former All-Star, as an equity partner.


Meet The Team

The Captains

Matt has been combining his love of sports and business from an early age when he was selling sportscards on eBay for a local card store.

Now, as a father with four children of his own, his love for both still burns bright. After meeting Zev by enrolling his kids to play on Zev's teams, they two struck an immediate friendship, and shortly thereafter, the idea of Guardian Baseball was born.

Matt brings an extensive business background to Guardian Baseball--one that includes founding two other successful companies in fashion and technology. Now, he's excited to finally be working in the industry that he loves the most while armed with skills and experience from his past.

A former college baseball player originally from Los Angeles, Zev Bernard is passionate about the sport and getting today's youth involved at an early age. This passion helped spark the idea for Guardian Baseball.

Zev operates an indoor training facility in the heart of Louisville and is involved with 15 different youth travel baseball teams, and through this involvement, he learned exactly what baseball players need from suppliers. At the time, the ideal supplier didn't exist... so he decided to make it.

Zev's experience as a player and coach combined with his business background made him the perfect candidate for selecting industry-leading products and building a company that only supplies the best.
