We asked our Customer Service Department for some help on this blog topic. What are customers asking for? What feedback were the reps getting? And we found a common issue for many of our customers and prospective customers is trying to determine the differences in the many shades of red that are available for team colors.
When it comes to ordering bags, buying batting helmets and batting gloves, many players want to match their team and show off their team colors. Some coaches require that players wear specific colors on the field, but not all coaches More >

As baseball and fastpitch softball have evolved as sports, the equipment each player uses has evolved as well. The gloves and mitts that are used on the field are more position-specific, helping the player field or catch the ball to the best of his/her ability. However, those that are new to a position may not understand the importance of the design of the glove and just what the big differences are between each one. This goes especially for the fielders that are considering catching for the first time. If you are new to being behind the dish, here are 3 More >
At one point or another in every athlete’s career, he or she will be cursed with the infamous “yips” for a certain period of time. For those that are unfamiliar with the yips, the term was first introduced to describe golfers that missed short and easy putts due to high-pressure situations. Since then, the yips can be used to describe athletes of any sport that can’t complete routine actions or plays that the player used to be able to do without a problem. Some of the worst cases are seen in professional baseball and softball players.

With summer coming to a close, baseball and softball players find themselves creeping into the dreaded “Off-Season”. What to do during this boring, game-less time? Well, many players take advantage of the down time by breaking in a new glove for the upcoming season.

But with this, many players, coaches and parents find themselves wondering, “What is the best way to break-in a new glove?”. Hopefully we can shed some light on this popular topic.
Things to Consider…

If baseball is considered to be a non-contact sport, then how do over 275,000 players visit the emergency room every year for baseball related injuries? Although player to player contact is not part of the game, players can get hurt in numerous ways. Some of the most common injuries in baseball are throwing-arm strains, hip/upper-leg strains, and head/face injuries from being struck by a baseball. Luckily, there are ways to treat and prevent such injuries and drastically reduce the chances of being injured in baseball. Here’s how:

Since posting about our “Axe Bat BP Giveaway”, I have gotten a number of questions regarding the Axe Bat and the theory behind the unique design of their patented handle and the durability of the barrel. With the influx of questions coming in, I thought I would dedicate a blog specifically to the benefits of the Axe bat and the information that backs up those proposed benefits.
If you are not familiar with the Axe bat design and what sets it apart from other manufacturers, start by looking at the handle. For baseball (all materials, including wood), fastpitch and slowpitch bats, More >

The Mako Torq – available for baseball and fastpitch – is the first of its kind, with a rotating handle to allow for free movement of the wrists through the swing. What does this mean? Simply put, the swing is shorter and quicker to the ball, allowing the player to square up more pitches; and longer through the ball, allowing full extension to get as much pop at contact as possible. This innovative technology, combined with Easton’s top-of-the line More >
