What Long Haul Bomber Champion and Team DeMarini member Chris Larsen wants, he gets. DeMarini went back to the basics and worked with Chris to build the bat that he wanted to swing on this year’s Stadium Tour. After thousands of swings in the cage, Chris finally agreed on the model that became the 2014 DeMarini Stadium CL22.
If you’re looking for a two-piece bat with crazy pop, the Stadium is the bat for you! It features DeMarini’s 4.ONE composite material in the barrel and an SC4 aluminum handle. Even though it’s a two-piece bat, the Stadium was designed for maximum stiffness and handles like a one-piece to give you incredible bat head control.
The Stadium has a 12” barrel with an extreme end load to enhance your swing speed. It is approved for play in USSSA, NSA, ISA and ISF leagues.

The Louisville Slugger brand has been synonymous with the game of baseball since they introduced their first wood bat 129 years ago. From Babe Ruth to Derek Jeter, the Louisville Slugger logo has left its mark on the great game of baseball. This season, tradition meets innovation as Louisville Slugger unveils an updated version of their classic logo.
The new Louisville Slugger logo is first being rolled out on their newest M9 and MLB Prime models which will feature harder wood for top of the line performance. The new wood drying and processing methods result in a harder wood that will not only be higher performing, but also more durable. Here are a few of the MLB’s best players who will continue to make their own mark with the new Louisville Slugger logo.
They’ve been waiting all year. Early morning weights before class and late night sessions in the cage have led up to this moment. College baseball and softball players across the nation are lacing up their cleats and stepping into the batter’s box to begin the 2013 season and reap the benefits of their off-season work.

Generating power and feel are important aspects to consider when creating an incredible fastpitch bat. Louisville Slugger has done this, and more, with the creation of the oneX and the latest edition of the Xeno.
The oneX is a new addition to Louisville Slugger’s 2013 fastpitch lineup and the early reviews are hot! The oneX is a two-piece design and uses S1iD composite technology which allows for a flexible, more forgiving barrel with an incredibly large sweet spot and balanced feel. The oneX also features the new T2 Technology. This straighter, thicker rubber ring strengthens the link between the barrel and handle and produces a trampoline-like spring and dramatically reduces vibration. Check out what Ruff Ryder had to say about the oneX:
The Xeno is back for another year of plate domination. The S1iD technology allows the barrel to flex to its maximum performance level without any break-in period. Its two-piece design uses thinner, high-strength LS-2X composite fibers which reduce the wall thickness, creating better performance while maintaining durability. The Xeno has cool new graphics, a balanced swing weight and will change your game, but don’t take our word for it:
What are some qualities that you look for in a slow pitch softball bat? Pop? Durability? A game-ready feel? The confidence that you have the right weapon in your hands when you step into the box can make all the difference between track power and circling the bases. Gain that confidence with one of these new bats from DeMarini’s 2013 slow pitch lineup.
The Flipper is new from DeMarini for 2013 and only approved for ASA play. It’s a two-piece hybrid design with Divergence barrel technology, which is two layers of composite with an air gap sandwiched in between. This creates an incredibly responsive sweet spot specifically designed to crush the new ASA .52/300 balls. The Flipper’s SC4 alloy handle provides an incredibly stiff feel, almost like you’re swinging a one-piece bat. The Flipper is catching the attention of power and contact hitters alike, but don’t just take our word for it. Check out this review from Patrick:
The ONE, or Sunday Swagger, has been one of DeMarini’s hottest slow pitch bats in recent years, and the FU-Dawg is no different. This two-piece hybrid design features a SC4 alloy handle, for an extra stiff feel, and a 4.ONE composite, end loaded barrel. The ONE is hot right out of the wrapper and ready to add some swagger to your game! ASA and ISF approved.
The J3 is the third edition of DeMarini’s popular Juggernaut line, and available in both a USSSA and ASA approved model. The J3 has a two-piece design that uses DeMarini’s patented TR3 F.L.O. composite material. The naturally chaotic and random fusing of the TR3’s composite fibers creates a more compact material that is stronger and lighter than ever before. Check out these customer reviews and see how the J3 is changing their game!

Sometimes to be successful on the field you have to stand out from the crowd and do things a little different. You can’t be afraid to try new things and you can’t be afraid to be who you are. History has a pretty good track record of successful people who have done things a little different and gone out of their comfort zone. Baseball and softball are no exception and that’s the message Louisville Slugger is trying to send with their “Beautifully Powerful” campaign. In the video above Jessica Mendoza says, “The best way to be successful in any sport and, honestly, even off the field is to be beautifully powerful and true to yourself and not try to be like everybody else.” and it makes a lot of sense. The only way to get better at some things is to try a new way of doing it. Louisville Slugger has several resources they have given us to be inspired to be more “Beautifully Powerful.” You can find it on a Facebook page, @sluggerFP on Twitter, and on a Pinterest page for Fastpitch players where you can find tons of awesome graphics to pin and share with your friends. Be sure to check out the Fastpitch page on www.slugger.com for more info and to support this awesome campaign! Also be sure to check out the Louisville Slugger Fast Pitch bats from JustBats.com!
The video pretty much speaks for itself on this bat, the Demarini CF5 dominates the softball field and the new 2013 CF5 will be no exception to that. This awesome bat features a two-piece composite design that’s balanced for increased swing speed. The new CF5 is also sporting some new technology such as TR3 F.L.O. Composite which has made this bat the lightest swinging Demarini bat ever! This bat also comes with a Geo End Cap that helps keep the barrel stiff and it also keeps energy from escaping through the end of the bat giving each hit a little extra burst of energy. Be sure to check out the video and stop by JustBats.com to pick up either the Demarini CF5 -9 or the -8 bat!
