Easton Diamond Sports released the highest-performing version of its fastpitch bat for 2024, the Ghost Advanced fastpitch bat returns with new technology and design. Several D1 college programs will play with the bat this year, including the Top 25 ranked teams: UCLA, San Diego State, Alabama, Arkansas, and South Carolina.

“We are excited to bring back one of the most successful models in the Ghost franchise, now in its third generation,” said Easton Bat Category Manager John Loeffler. “The high-performing Double Barrel 3 technology coupled with the most durable composite material we’ve ever made gives players an amazing feel with the hottest performance possible.”

The 2024 Ghost Advanced Softball bat’s third-generation Double Barrel 3 technology gives hitters an “exceptional feel and the hottest exit velocities possible, thanks to the low-compression outer barrel and a lightweight inner barrel to govern performance right at the maximum allowed limit.” Sonic Comp Max material is the most consistent, durable composite Easton has ever made, resulting in an “enormous sweet spot and a sound that’s nothing less than iconic.”

“Easton remains on top in the latest technology and innovation,” said Easton’s Matt Arndt, SVP of product and R&D. Our team has continued to push even further on top of our Ghost franchise to add another mainstay to our portfolio, which will make a difference on every field.”

Easton Ghost Advanced and the Ghost Franchise are the “No.1 Performance Fastpitch Softball Bat Series* on the market and the top choice of professional players, travel ball programs, and D1 college programs.”**
