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?

This innovative technology, combined with Easton’s top-of-the line More >
Dudley is reentering the slowpitch world by introducing the Dudley Lightning Legend bat. With three different types of bats in this line, Dudley is making it easy for each player to find a bat specific to his or her style of hitting.
What makes this bat stand out against other competitors? The answer is simple, the innovative “Grip-Spin Technology”. Grip-Spin is a slightly sticky coating that has been approved by the SSUSA (senior league), which covers the bat from the barrel down to where it meets the grip on the handle. Essentially, this material allows the ball to grip to the More >

Since the beginning of the sport, runners and catchers colliding at the plate have been a huge part of baseball. Bottom of the 9th, down by one, one out, and a runner on third, everyone knows what is about to happen. Batter pops it up to shallow right field, runner tags and it’s going to be close. Right fielder lasers it home and the runner and catcher collide. Everyone is on the edge of their seat. The umpire throws his hands in the air — “Safe”. Run is in and the home team forces extra innings. The “Play at the Plate” More >
