The Universal Athletic Bat Demo Day was full of pitched balls and swinging bats. There were coaches clinics and players trying out top of the line equipment. About 600 people showed up, including coaches and athletes. Universal Athletic employees were there to give away swag like lanyards, water, etc. and get athlete information for the launch of the new website! It was lots of fun! A Wii console and sports game was being raffled off.
Rawlings Sporting Goods rep Scott Lively said of the event-
