EASTON CONGRATULATES UCLA FOR WINNING THE 2019 NCAA SOFTBALL NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP

THOUSAND OAKS, CA. (JUNE 6, 2019) – Easton Diamond Sports, LLC. celebrates storied program, as UCLA Softball makes history again by winning its 12th national title. UCLA and Easton have been proud partners for all 12 of the Bruins’ National Championships.

With UCLA’s dominant performance at the plate in this year’s WCWS, Easton once again has the #1 Bat in Women’s College World Series History.*

Easton congratulates the Bruins on their NCAA-leading 12th National Championship in softball, and we’re happy to share a small part of the Bruins’ success with the launch of the new Easton Ghost Double Barrel bat that is approved for all fields of play. Just like the Bruins, Easton represents the pinnacle of its industry and we are fortunate to have such an amazing partner in UCLA Softball. Go Bruins!”
