Easton is a name known around the baseball and softball world. Since being founded by Doug Easton in 1922, the company has worked relentlessly to put out products that their customers could rely on. The company, currently headquartered in Van Nuys, California has grown to include more than 1,000 employees working in various divisions ranging from softball and baseball to ice hockey, cycling and archery.
Easton really began to make a dent in the bat market in 1969 when they released the first aluminum bat. Ever since, Easton has been trusted to complete other "firsts" in the bat industry, becoming the first company to produce bats from titanium, C405 and the first to use a carbon core. The Easton brand has grown to include more than just bats in the baseball and softball division as the company also puts out some of the most trusted gloves and accessories on the market.
In terms of their most popular bats, Easton puts out bats that can be used in wood, aluminum or composite leagues. The Easton B3.0 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 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 an Easton bat 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 little more power in their swing. It was built with a composite handle with a THT100 scandium barrel, giving it the best of both worlds: production and durability.
