This really gives me a great feeling of confidence on the field,” said Bregman. “It’s great to collaborate and have my voice and ideas turn into such cool products that Easton is also making available to players all over the country. Seeing my AB2 ball gloves out on youth baseball fields is really exciting!”

Bregman, along with fellow Team Easton players, will use a collection of signature Pro Collection ball gloves along with signature Walk-Off and Pro X batting gloves. Team Easton MLB catchers will be wearing Pro X catcher’s gear. Easton will be rolling out these limited edition, “Small Batch” MLB collections across its product lines throughout the 2019 season.
