The UCLA Softball program has renewed its sponsorship deal with Easton, extending the commitment through the 2018 season.
“Easton Sports is incredibly proud to continue our long-standing relationship with the UCLA Softball 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 Oklahoma City year in and year out and add to the NCAA record of National Championships in Westwood.”
Easton, a longtime sponsor of the program and the title sponsor of UCLA Softball’s home ballpark, Easton Stadium, provides the teams with equipment such as bats, batting gloves, catcher’s equipment, batting helmets and fielding gloves. Serving as UCLA’s equipment sponsor during the softball team’s 2010 National Championship run, under the terms of the new deal, the Bruins will continue their exclusive use of Easton products on the diamond for years to come.
“UCLA Softball and Easton Sports have had a great relationship through many championship moments,” said UCLA head softball coach Kelly Inouye-Perez. “We look forward to creating more great memories with Easton.”
