BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (February 3, 2012) – National sporting goods retailer Hibbett Sporting Goods, Inc. operating as Hibbett Sports, is sponsoring the Easton Hit Lab hosted by Easton Sports on February 18, 2012 in Conway, Arkansas.

The promotion, which ran from December 30, 2011 through January 20, 2012 asked players to tell Easton how they define success at the plate. With the help of former LSU baseball coach and athletic director Skip Bertman, forty lucky participants were selected to participate.

The Easton Hit Lab is a unique hitting system designed to measure performance and provide players with readings on which of the six Easton Power Brigade bats is best for them based on their individual hitting style. The legendary Skip Bertman will be on site to answer player’s questions and provide coaching expertise.

The Hit Lab will be held at Conway Christian School in Conway, Arkansas from 9 a.m to 4 p.m. on February 18, 2012.

For those not selected for the Easton Hit Lab, the Easton Power Brigade Bat Demo and Drawing hosted by Hibbett Sports will be open to the public from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. This event gives everyone a chance to test out the different Power Brigade Bats. Each bat uses a different technology and therefore, different athletes perform better with different bats. Participants will also have the chance to win Easton gear, including a new Power Brigade bat.
