Tim Markison, founder and CEO of Athalonz G-Force Baseball Shoes and RFP Mounds, has partnered with Steve Sigler and the MSBL family to bring our members special products at competitive prices. You may have visited the Athalonz booth recently at the MSBL World Series in Arizona and seen this very innovative footwear designed especially for baseball.
Founded in 2011 and introduced in 2015, Tim has developed the credo of ‘fusing sports and technology.’ “We wanted to bring sports science into the athletic shoe arena,” explained Markison. “Our scientists worked for four years testing and designing the correct balance of generating more power and balance while placing less stress on the back, knees and joints. I think we got it right.”
Athalonz is also very active in the charitable market with their shoes. “We have made an arrangement with the Louisville Slugger Amputee Baseball Team to supply their team with our G-Force spikes in 2018,” said Tim. “We have also shipped our shoes to numerous high schools who are low income or have recently been hit with tragedies. We supplied some Houston high schools with Athalonz spikes after the hurricane. We feel that it is so important to give back to these communities and assist the next generation of ballplayers.”
Tim and his staff continue to support MSBL and play in the Arizona MSBL. Tim relocated to Mesa, Arizona in 2010 and immediately found a league to keep playing ball. “I still play and also attend the ProBall Clinic headed by John Rubinow when I can to stay sharp. Baseball is a huge part of my life and I am happy to be contributing and helping players perform at new levels and play without aches and pains. It is very rewarding and I am happy to partner up with MSBL and be designated as the official shoe of MSBL.”

Concluded Tim, “These shoes will help the majority of players play better and experience less pain. We’re excited about what we have been able to design and bring to the diamond.”
