The “Green Easton,” Legendary Metal Bat, Returns | Pre-Sale Today

Today Easton has offered for pre-sale the return of the “Green Easton,” the B5 Pro Big Barrel -3 BBCOR bat. A legendary name in college baseball circles, the “Green Easton” was THE metal bat to swing back in the late 70s and 80s, when legends like Bo Jackson, Tony Gwynn, Barry Larkin, Paul O’Neill, and even John Elway (above) were coming up.

Easton stayed beautifully true to the original, and when we unboxed it this past weekend, we all immediately loved the look.

It was also LOUD, especially when Scott “Tank” Kalush was swinging it.

Here’s a few throwbacks that show the heritage of the Green Easton:
