UCLA BASEBALL RENEWS SPONSORSHIP DEAL WITH EASTON
January 15, 2014
The UCLA Baseball program has renewed its sponsorship deal with Easton, extending the commitment through the 2025 season.
“Easton has proven year after year that they are the number one manufacturer of college baseball equipment,” UCLA head baseball coach John Savage said. “Everyone involved with UCLA Baseball is excited to continue this relationship, and we are very pleased that our players will exclusively use Easton equipment for years to come.”
Easton has been a longtime sponsor of the UCLA baseball program, providing its teams with equipment such as bats, batting gloves, catcher’s equipment, batting helmets and fielding gloves. Serving as UCLA’s equipment sponsor during last season’s 2013 National Championship run, under the terms of the new deal, the Bruins will continue their exclusive use of Easton products on the diamond for the next decade-plus.
“Easton Sports is incredibly proud to continue our long-standing relationship with the UCLA Baseball program,” said Calin Thomas, Director of Sports Marketing for Easton. “UCLA Athletics and Easton Sports are built on foundations of innovation, tradition and excellence. Easton prides itself on high performing products and sports engineering. We constantly strive to improve athlete’s performance levels. It is our goal to help the Bruins get to Omaha year in and year out and add to the NCAA record of National Championships in Westwood.”
