SENIOR SOFTBALLERS READY TO MAKE #BALLGOFAR WITH 2016 HYPER-Z

LOUISVLLE, KY (March 2015) – It’s amazing to see guys with such passion for softball that they just won’t quit. Not even in their 50s, 60s 70s or 80s! Because senior softball is on the rise, Louisville Slugger® – the brand so many of those older players grew up with – created the Hyper-Z, a bat especially for those guys who love the game too much to quit.

"Senior softball is growing rapidly as more guys over 50 return to the game they loved in their 20s, 30s and 40s." said Louisville Slugger Slow Pitch Softball Business Manager Dennis Turner. "We spent two years developing the Hyper-Z – the best bat ever created for senior players – just so those guys can still enjoy the thrill of crushing a softball. At that age, there’s no feeling like showing other senior players that you’ve still got it and can make the ball go far. Dropping bombs never gets old!"

The 2016 Hyper-Z is built with Louisville Slugger's 100-percent Pure 360 Composite design. Its proprietary TRU-3™ three-piece construction and end-loaded weight allow hitters to transfer power through the ball and out of the park.

"The ball just jumps off the Hyper-Z," said senior softball player Wally Lethgo, 56, a member of Six Pack/Louisville Senior Sluggers, the senior softball world champions. "The buzz about this new bat coming out is enormous. Senior players all over the country are asking for the Louisville Slugger Hyper-Z."

The Hyper-Z is approved for play in all senior softball associations. This high-performing 1.21 BPF bat comes with a 12" barrel and grit-blast finish. It is available in 26-, 27-, 28- and 29-ounce weights. Louisville Slugger’s Hyper-Z has no warranty and retails for $219.99.
