Easton is an enormous brand name known internationally for baseball bats, baseball gloves and softball bats. Founded by Doug Easton in 1922, and purchased from Easton-Bell Sports by the Performance Sports Group Ltd. (best known for its Bauer brand of sporting goods) in 2014, Easton has worked relentlessly to produce best-of-breed, and technologically advanced, baseball and softball sporting goods equipment. The company, which remains headquartered in Van Nuys, California, has grown to include more than 1,100 employees working in various divisions. Easton really began to make a dent in the sporting goods bats market in 1969, when Easton released the first aluminum bat. Ever since, Easton has been trusted to complete other "firsts" in the batting equipment industry, becoming the first sporting goods company to produce bats from titanium (the Easton STI1 Titanium Typhoon, in 1993, produced by a rolled sheet of 0.053" thick titanium) and the first to use a carbon core. The Easton brand has grown to include more than just bats in the baseball and softball divisions, as the company also puts out some of the most trusted gloves and softball accessories on the market. In terms of their most popular bats, Easton puts out bats that can be used in wood bats leagues, aluminum softball leagues, or composite leagues. The Easton Raw Power is one of the best composite bats available for recreation league players. Approved for use in ASA and ISF leagues, this bat has a two piece composite design completed with Easton ConneXion Technology. It is also a part of the Raw series, which is one of the most popular bat franchises in the sport. For those looking to use Easton Bats in ASA aluminum leagues, the Easton Salvo is a popular option; This bat has the end-loaded feel, making it a solid option for those looking to get a bit more power through their swing. It was built with a composite handle with a THT100 scandium barrel, giving it the best of both worlds: production and durability, during play.
