Fastpitch Season Preview

Some all-new fastpitch gear has just arrived and elite players better take notice: these are some game-changers. Let’s break down some of this season’s hottest products.

Under Armour Fast Pitch Cleats

Under Armour Glyde

The first thing you’ll probably look for is your cleats, and we can’t recommend the Under Armour Glyde highly enough. With metal and molded options available, these cleats feature a UA Spine chasis for long-lasting comfort and a synthetic upper for added durability and breathability. Once you lace them up, you’ll never want to take them off.

DeMarini CF9 Fastpitch Bat

DeMarini CF9 Fastpitch Bat

When it comes to fastpitch bats, everyone wants as much power as possible, and few bats pack as much of a punch as the DeMarini CF9. A Paraflex Composite Barrel consisting of strong carbon fibers adds more pop to every swing. A D-Fusion 2.0 Handle redirects the energy you make during contact back into the barrel for less sting and vibration.

Easton ZF7 VRS Hyperskin Fastpitch Batting Gloves

Easton ZF7 VRS Hyperskin Fastpitch Batting Gloves

But before you swing away, make sure that your hands have the perfect grip, support, and protection with the Easton ZF7 VRS Hyperskin Gloves. A Goatskin Palm gives you full control over your at-bats, while VRS palm padding helps reduce vibrations and blisters.

Nike Breakout Batting Helmet

Nike Breakout Batting Helmet

It may not be the coolest fastpitch gear to talk about, but the helmet is the most important. There are great options out there and the Nike Breakout leads the pack. Its streamlined ABS molded shell is lightweight and durable while its dual-density foam pad system ensures that you stay protected all game long.

Mizuno MVP Prime GMVP1200PF2 Fastpitch Glove

Mizuno MVP Prime GMVP1200PF2 Fastpitch Glove

What’s the first thing you look for in a glove? Comfort? Control? A quick break-in? Well, you can get all that and more with the Mizuno MVP Prime Glove. It is constructed from Oil Soft Plus leather for exceptional fit and feel. Its center pocket design patterns give you the most versatile break-in possible.

Of course, we have plenty of other great fastpitch gear in the sizes, colors, and brands you love. So, what are you waiting for!? This is your chance to grab the gear you’ve always wanted and become a force on the diamond.
