“The growth of the game, from youth to college to pro levels, and usage of Easton products over the last year have been astounding,” said Easton SVP of Sales and Marketing Dan Jelinek. “We are so excited to strengthen and expand our partnerships with the top collegiate softball programs and players in the country, especially as the world prepares for softball’s return to the Summer Olympics in 2020. This is a remarkable time and amazing opportunity to make an even greater impact on the future development of the game, with products specifically designed for fastpitch athletes.”
