Easton Diamond Sports Launches New USSSA Baseball Bat

Corporate • June 5, 2023

THOUSAND OAKS, CALIFORNIA (June 1, 2023) – Easton Diamond Sports announced the launch of the 2024 Hype™ Fire USSSA bat. The Hype Fire was available for purchase starting June 1 on with purchase dates at all retail stores as well as online starting June 8.

Powered by Easton’s commitment to ongoing research and feedback from some of the best travel ball players in the country, the Hype Fire represents a huge leap forward in USSSA bat technology. Engineered for the elite USSSA athlete, the all-new 2024 Hype Fire boasts one of the lowest barrel compressions in the industry.

“Our team tested, gathered feedback and validated iterations with some of the best travel ball players around the country,” said John Loeffler, Easton Bat Category Manager, “which resulted in a higher performing, better feeling and better sounding bat that we were confident players of all ages would love.”

The 2024 Hype FIRE features a redesigned TCT™ barrel with a wider sweet spot from taper to end cap with more barrel flex and insane pop out of the wrapper. The perfectly balanced barrel produces more bat speed and better control while delivering higher overall performance. The Connexion Max™ elastomer connector interlocks the handle to the barrel, eliminating vibration for optimal feel. Pairing perfectly with the smooth and forgiving feel of the new ultra-stiff OptiFlex Handle, this 2-piece composite bat allows the batter to get the barrel through the zone faster and creates easy power to all fields.

“Easton has always stood for and been known as one of the leaders in product innovation in the industry,” said Easton SVP of Product & R&D Matt Arndt. “Our team continues to keep that at the forefront when developing best in class product for players on all fields.”

The Hype™ Fire retails for $349.99. For more information or to purchase the Hype Fire, please visit  and follow Easton on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and TikTok.
